The mission of the Putnam County Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret the natural, historical and cultural heritage of the county.  Since 2003, the Museum has been bridging generations, connecting communities, and helping to preserve Putnam County‚Äôs past. Whether you are a lifelong resident of the area or a visitor to the community, you are cordially invited to visit the Putnam County Museum and learn more about the community.

The Putnam County Museum is a great local history resource for educators and parents. They welcome children of all ages and grades for field trips. Third and fourth grade classes receive special invitations because a trip to the Museum complements the Indiana and Putnam County history curriculum. Their Education Committee, composed of active and retired teachers, has created engaging programs for students. They have linked the information to Indiana Standards for your teaching convenience.

Please book field trips four weeks in advance, giving more than one possible date for a visit. They recommend spending a minimum of 60-90 minutes at the Museum. Please visit for more information!
