Lake County Historical Museum

The Lake County Historical Museum was established in 1982. The museum was funded by the Oktober Committee, organized by Hank and Bea Baum, and is now operated by the Lake County Historical Society.

Located on the second floor, the museum houses many interesting exhibits that reflect the history of Lake County and its many communities. Within its four spacious rooms are documents, pictures, and artifacts representing such cities and towns as Gary, Hammond, Whiting, East Chicago, Munster, Griffith, Highland, Merrillville, Deep River, Ainsworth, Hobart, Lake Station, Crown Point, Lowell, Cedar Lake, Schererville, St. John, Winfield, and many more.

The museum, located on the second floor of the Old Courthouse, is open May through October every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Special tours may be arranged by contacting the museum. A donation of one dollar for adults and fifty cents for children is asked. The museum is a member of the Association of Indiana Museums, the Crown Point Chamber of Commerce, and the Historic Communities of Northwest Indiana. The museum is a 501(c)(3), making donations tax deductible. Please support our efforts in our 25th year of operation by joining our society or donating to the museum.
