Chariton County Museum
Admission is FREE – donations are welcome and appreciated!
The museum is at the heart of what CCHS does, and houses our large collection of artifacts, photographs, documents, and other memorabilia. The museum encompasses four adjoining buildings, which were all built prior to 1893.
Hours of Operation
The museum is open from the first Tuesday in April through the last Saturday in October. Regular museum hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM or by special appointment. Please contact us to schedule a special appointment time. The museum is closed during the winter months.
Guided tours are available, or you can enjoy a scavenger hunt on a self-guided tour. Or simply wander through the many rooms and exhibits at your leisure.
