Dubois County Museum

Known as one of the largest county museums in the state of Indiana, this museum showcases the rich German heritage and history of the Dubois County area. Visit the “Main Street Dubois County” featuring 17 rooms portraying life at the turn of the 20th century including a barber shop, bank, hotel, photographer and shoe shop. A hands-on area houses a one-room schoolhouse and play yard, an interactive Lewis and Clark expedition boat, dress-up area and a log reading nook. Take a journey back in time with a visit to the double log cabin, historic agricultural machinery collection and the furniture industry, sports and military exhibits.

Museum hours are: Tuesday through Friday 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm & Sunday 1:00 – 4:00 pm. The museum is closed on Mondays. Please allow two hours to tour the exhibits.




  1. I am looking for a museum to donate my snowman collection to. I am in my 70s and starting to downsize in preparation to moving to a smaller residence. I would be happy to send you a photo of my collection for your inspection. Please contact me.
