I went there in June of 2019 with my husband and four grandkids. We enjoyed reading all about Springfield and Clark County in their early years. Very educational.

Small enough to see it all in one visit but big enough to really take you through the history of Springfield and Clark County in a very interesting and non overwhelming way.

First the building itself is very interesting and one of the more architectural pleasing structures in the area. Clearly there are some local historians and volunteers who put a lot of effort into this place and it shows. The focus is the history and contributions of Clark County. It’s well laid out and I particularly enjoyed that they had on display actual belongings to local residents going back to the Civil War. If you are in town give this place some time. It does not take long. It is free albeit with a suggested donation.

Wow- what a surprise. Springfield has an amazing history and it is all laid out here. We were fortunate to have an terrific docent guide to help us through- hope Larry is available on your visit. We especially liked the room that recreated the exhibition room at the 1893 world fair in Chicago. It is filled with all the industrial production that put Springfield on the map. Well worth a visit- you need at least 1 hour- free parking just outside.

The first time I went to this museum was because my son had an assignment. I learned as much as he did about my hometown.
