Located in the Nauvoo State Park, the museum features a stone-arched wine cellar and original 150-year-old winemaking equipment. The original home of four rooms was built in the 1840's. Alois Rheinberger added four more rooms in 1850, plus the wine cellar. The Nauvoo Historical Society has staffed the museum since 1954. It is to preserve an important part of Nauvoo's history that is unique to the site. Open May 15th – Oct 15th or by appointment.
