    • About

      The Museum has been housed in Norton's original Public Library since 1992. This landmark building was constructed in 1932 and was visited by generations of Norton County library patrons.

      A wide variety of the Museum’s exhibits showcase life in Norton County over the centuries, from the fossils of the prehistoric past, to one of the largest meteorites to hit North America, to the life and booming times of the businesses in Norton during the 1940's through the 1960's.

      For visitors of all ages, the Museum uses local history to inspire, spark curiosity, and give perspective to the place we call home, Norton County. Visit our website for a preview of the treasures to be found.
