Museum Exhibitions

The Geneva History Center offers two museum exhibition galleries that present engaging history lessons by combining research, artifacts and informative commentary.

CLOSED FOR CONSTRUCTION UNTIL AUGUST 23 for our 10th Anniversary on 3rd Street Gala Celebration!
The award-winning exhibition Greetings from Geneva is located in our 3,000 square-foot permanent exhibition gallery. It introduces local history to newcomers and offers interesting detail for those already familiar with the town’s development.  Watch for more info on our 10th Anniversary on Third Street Gala in the Spring of 2014 featuring technology updates and refresh of this exhibition thanks to a grant from the Robinson Foundation, the Jaeger family and matching donors.

The 1,000 square-foot gallery provides feature exhibitions that highlight different pieces of Geneva’s history through the museum’s artifacts and archival collection as well as featuring traveling exhibitions.

If you have an idea or suggestion for an exhibition, we want to hear about it! This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to share your ideas.
