This is a great small museum with some really wow exhibits. They combine local and regional events along with some really outstanding nationally known events and personalities. This museum is really worth a stop the next time you are in Lima.

I have been to other museums and nothing holds up like Allen County. I am amazed when I run into people that have never been there.

This Museum is very large it will take at least 3 hours to go through. there are 3 floors of things to see. there is a hands on area for children, lots of history items, model railroad tracts. plus for $3.00 you get to tour the MacDonnell house which is beautiful.

Visited this museum some time ago on my many trips to Lima. Even my little grandaughter was able to follow about the history of the local and surrounding areas.
Staff were very informative and children well catered for.

Like that there is a children's museum also. Many interactive things for the kids. The newer addition is all about trains. Love that you can see the train from the window when driving by. Also the John Dillinger exhibit is interesting and very informative. The gem collection is gorgeous. Also enjoy seeing the Easter Straker Birthday Chair, ok probably because I vaguely remember sitting in that birthday chair as a kid and digging in for a handful of change :-) Christmas Tree Festival is a must see, as there are so many decorated trees from around the community and even a talking evergreen. The log cabin is cool, love when the cook in the cabin. Right next to the Children's Garden, Ronald MacDonald House and Library.
