Native American Museum
The Native American Museum is located in beautiful Dobbs Memorial Park. It is the only museum of its kind to be operated by a city parks department in the Midwest. Our permanent displays feature the life ways of the native peoples of the Northeast Woodlands, and we have numerous temporary exhibits as well.
The Native American Museum has also been a member of the Wabash Valley Visions and Voices Project since 2004. Sponsored by Indiana State University, the project's goal is to digitize the collections of local libraries and museums, and is a valuable tool for educators, as well as the general public.
