Our Mission

To discover, collect, preserve, exhibit, study and interpret objects relating to the history of Champaign County, and to provide educational programs about the County’s heritage and the Museum’s collections.

Exhibiting

OUR COUNTY HISTORY

 

At our core, we are a museum and that means exhibiting the many objects that have been entrusted to our care.  We will strive to ensure that our artifacts don't simply sit behind glass but come alive through the stories they tell.

Preserving 

OUR COLLECTION

 

The Champaign County History Museum is the steward of an immense collection of over 20,000 artifacts directly linked to Champaign County's history.  Our mission is to use these artifacts to tell our collective story.

Bringing 
HISTORY TO LIFE
One of our most profound responsibilities is to ensure that our artifacts, and the stories they tell, live on.  We do this by offering educational opportunities in order to bring history to life for all ages.
Opening History
TO THE COMMUNTIY
The museum strives to offer access to not only the collection but also a rich archive of documents, papers, photographs and publications that help our citizens explore their own past.
