Four exhibits and the Museum's new gift shop will entertain and educate guests.

* The history exhibit, In Service to Putnam County, features the 1928 Greencastle Studebaker engine and shares stories of local volunteer and professional firefighters.

* The art exhibit, Art in Transit, showcases the work of more than a dozen local artists on the theme of transportation.

* Visitors can test their knowledge of national and local African-American history with the traveling timeline currently hanging in the museum's multipurpose room.

* And the Baugh family memorializes Officer Jim Baugh in the Community Curated exhibit space.

The Children's Area offers hands-on historic toys and a small display of fire truck toys.

There is something for everyone at the museum.
