Welcome to Geneva Lake Museum

The Museum strives to provide a fascinating, inviting and thought-provoking visit where our guests can enjoy our experiences and exhibits. We strive to capture the history of the Geneva Lakes Area over many decades to the present. Our exhibits are “the real thing”. The collections of artifacts of furniture, clothing, boats, instruments, and all the rest are items from the area. Most of which have been donated by residents whose families have made the whole area what it is today. Come and learn and enjoy.


Visitors can walk the brick-paved street of yesteryear, lined with the homes and businesses to be found in the lake area from 1830 to 1930.  Walk through those doors, to see and touch what made up everyday life in those days.  Trains, cars, boats, fire engine…It’s all there, full size or in miniature.


If you expect to visit more than once or want to bring guests, annual memberships to the Museum are suggested. Being a member also gets you discounts and benefits. 


The volunteers who created our museum and those who staff it and maintain it are proud and pleased to offer to the public the history of the Geneva Lake area.  There is always more to be done.
