Visit the St. Joseph Museum.

The museum has exhibits such as 'Indians of the Northwest Coast.' This is a story about the ghost dance and the last member of the Yahi tribe, Ishi. There are also interactive exhibits for children such as the 'Touch & Go Room' where they can climb into a fort or tipi.

There are exhibits on the second floor showing St. Joseph from prehistoric days to its 'Golden Age' in the 1800s. There is a restored Victorian bedroom and displays of the fur trade.

The third floor has exhibits focusing on the natural history of the Midwest.

During the holiday season, the museum is outlined in lights and is spectacular. The museum was originally a mansion built in 1879. All the furnishings have been replaced by exhibits, but you can still see the beautiful woodwark and stained glass windows.

The Museum is open year round except for Thanksgiving and December 24,25, 31 and January 1.

Admission: $2.00 adults, $1.00 students, children 6 years and under free.
