Current Exhibit

What’s new at the Blairstown Museum?

The Blairstown Museum’s exhibits are more than just a display of artifacts – the pieces housed within our walls convey the story of the Blairstown experience. Both diverse and unique, they prompt us to think critically and challenge our conceptions of the Greater Blairstown Area and the people who lived here.

Our permanent and rotating exhibits serve great purpose in the community. Carefully researched and impeccably presented, our themed exhibitions provide some of the best opportunities to connect with our history.

Here is what you’ll see at The Blairstown Museum right now:
» John Insley Blair : Poverty to Philanthropy
» Mary Kise Burham : A Life Remembered
» Movie : Abe Lincoln in Illinois
