PERMANENT AND TEMPORARY EXHIBITS
We offer many opportunities for the public to learn about Germans in our area and the nation. The museum includes an interactive, audio-visual exhibit, “The German Immigrant Experience” which takes visitors on an exploration of what it was like to be an immigrant to this area in the 1800s. Temporary, or traveling, exhibits expand on our permanent exhibit highlighting specific topics of interest.
Tuesdays through Saturday
The museum will be closed
