Huron County Museum & Historic Gaol

The Huron County Museum is a first-class community museum offering visitors modern exhibition galleries.   Temporary exhibits cover a wide spectrum of subjects of special interest. Permanent exhibits depict the early settlement and development of Huron County. The History Hall, with store fronts and a locomotive, allows you to stroll back in time. An extensive Military Gallery, Furniture Gallery and Agricultural Displays interest and fascinate the visitor.

The Huron Historic Gaol is a unique and imposing octagonal building which served as the County Jail from its opening in 1841 until 1972 when all inmates were transferred to regional facilities.  This seasonal site is open from May through October.

Both museums have Tour-Mate audio guides that explain exhibits for visitors with detailed, 110-minute tours.
