Activity Overview

The building that houses the Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County has stood in Crawfordsville, Indiana, for over a century and played the role of the city's library from 1902 until 2005 when a larger library was opened on the other side of the street. While no longer a library, the building is still operated by the Crawfordsville District Public Library and is a great educational destination for families wanting to learn more about the area to visit.

Whether you're just visiting Indianapolis or a permanent resident, you should make the hour-long trip northwest from downtown Indianapolis to Crawfordsville. Since converting from a library to a museum, the Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County has displayed and still displays many interesting exhibits covering the fields of art, history, natural history, and the story of Montgomery County itself.

Things to Do

  • How did the natives and the first settlers to the county live? Learn more about the history of the county in the museum's Early History Gallery.
  • View the artwork of Crawfordsville natives. The art displays even feature the works of the former mayor of Crawfordsville who was a nationally syndicated cartoonist in the past. A great exhibit for the kids!
