About our Museum
Preserving Our Incredible History
Established in 2007 for French Lick's 150th birthday, we began retelling the stories of our incredible towns as a pop-up museum. In 2011, we returned and in 2014 our current location was placed in the beautifully restored Dickason Building in downtown French Lick.
Today, we continue to tell the incredible histories of our towns through impressive exhibits, interactive experiences, and first-person stories.
We look forward to your visit, and to stepping back into history with us!
