Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I've lived around the world, and this museum has to be one of my favorites! It's literally got a little bit of everything - and a heck of a lot to see! They do a spectacular job with the displays, and there's everything from Samurai swords, to a plane, to a mummy, to one of a kind cars, items etc etc...Handicap accessible, and you'll need about 2 hours. Get there as fast as you can and thank me later!

Original building is an old Quaker meeting house but is filled with the most interesting displays. Additional buildings and out buildings for exploration but allow no less than 3 hours for this great museum.

My wife and I went here while unexpectantly staying in the area. It was very educational and interesting. I would not have expected a museum of this caliber to be in this size of town. The exhibits covers allot more than just the local area. Plan on at least 1, 5 to 2 hours to see everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cost is very modest. So if you like all types of history stop here

This museum, housed in an historic former Quaker meeting house, was a local heiress's legacy to the town ( and home to her collection of curiosities and finds from around the world) Her journals about lands far and wide are also very interesting to read, this from a turn of the century to 20's and 30's viewpoint of the world ( can't pick up and pocket mosaics from Pompeii anymore! Or cart back miscellaneous mummies) but fascinating nonetheless. Also a great history of the multi million dollar industry and wealth of Richmond back in the day, from farming to ceramics to industry, agriculture and the arts. Also an unexpected collection of historic vehicles and farm equipment, and historic pioneer structures moved on to the property. Something for every age group and enthusiast, and a cute gift shop

$7 for adults, $4 dollars kids 6 and up, 6 and under free. We assumed this would be local history, just something to occupy some time with the kids. We were surprised by all to see here: a chair from Abraham Lincoln, an Egyptian mummy, lots of interesting historical artifacts. There was so much to see here, we spent several hours and easily could have spent longer. We had kids with us, ages 1, 4, 10, 15 and 16 and all were entertained. Very much worth the visit. Would definitely go back.

NOT your average small county museum. One of two Egyptian mummies in the state and a wonderful mummy related area. Great collection of old Richmond-built cars. A log cabin and a log school house. This museum is not tax supported! Look for the Budda head on North A Street! The building is a former Quaker meeting house.

The Wayne County Historical Museum has an odd mix of exhibits, from a display of a hundred kinds of horseshoes to a few locally-manufactured cars, and of course the famous mummy. There ought to be *something* to interest you here!

Thank you! Of the 14 Models of cars manufactured in Richmond, IN we have 9 representations in our Car Wing. There are only 2 privately owned Mummies in Indiana and they are both in Richmond, IN of which we have one that has been on display since we opened in August of 1929. A quote from Bruce Sampsell, former President of Fisher Price Toys says it all; "This gem of a Museum is like a NY Metropolitan, Smithsonian & Williamsburg all rolled into one."

We have tried to take the grandsons each year for the past few years (ages 4, 6, 8). This year was the best yet. There was lots of candy stations and games. Decorations were well done and not too scary. The boys can't stop talking about it and can't wait until next year. Well done.

Thank you for sharing your experience at our Haunted Museum. Be sure to check for details about our event this year; we are planning a few changes to get the Adults entertained as well. Maybe an Adult night or having the Not so Scary Fun for Children the First hour and the Second hour more frightening; we are still working out the details. Like our FB page, closer to the event we will have the details ironed out. Thanks again for the great review!
