  • Went to the gingerbread festival here. The museum is small but a beautiful building and very interesting. I was with a group so my time was limited. I would like to revisit so I can take my time.  more »

  • Pretty interesting micro museum. A local flavor to the venue.
  • Rather small, but still a nice place to visit with the kids. Takes no more than 30-45 min to see everything. The jail exhibit downstairs is kinda creepy. I'm not sure if smaller kids would enjoy.
  • So much history, so little time. This place is a treasure everyone needs to see it. If you're from Fort Wayne and haven't been here then you're not truly from Fort Wayne.
  • More than meets the eye! I was very impressed with the items they have preserved and displayed here! I will be stopping back soon to do a little more exploring!
  • Great place to learn about Fort Wayne's history. Many items to see and read about.
