The Museum Association of Douglas County was formed in 1984 because many historical and decorative arts objects were being destroyed and/or removed from the county, even though a historical society existed at the time.

The national award-winning Douglas County Museum is operated by volunteers (with a part-time paid Curator). The museum features exhibits about a wide range of topics pertinent to the history of Douglas County and east central Illinois. Throughout the year, the museum staff also offers a wide range of special events and programs. Browse our website for more details.
