Established in 1916, the Porter County Museum engages Porter county’s rich past with the evolving present to educate, enrich, and inspire our communities. 

The award-winning PoCo Muse maintains free general admission year-round as the oldest institution devoted to the history and culture of Porter County.

There is something for everyone at the Porter County Museum. You don’t have to be a historian to enjoy our unique collection. Adults are invited to examine artifacts from our nation’s past. Children are invited to learn the history of the community through our hands-on, interactive displays. Whatever your age or interest, you are sure to hear a good story when you visit the Porter County Museum. Hope to see you soon at the PoCo Muse!
