Museum Hours

Winter is the season when we have fewer visitors at the museum and when volunteers are working to rearrange displays.  This year we will be moving more items into our new addition and renovating other areas.

However, when weather permits, the Jay County Historical Museum will be closed on Mondays.  

The museum is open from Tuesday through Friday at 10 to 4:00 PM. 

Monday and Saturday the museum is open by chance or by appointment.

A new display already in place is about the local Grange.  Stop by and see this in the library showcases.
