After many months of work, we're happy to announce our re-opening November 19 from 1 - 4 p.m. and continue on Sundays after that.

We just completed work in three rooms to repair the peeling walls and ceilings, installed new electrical and lighting, and put in new flooring. The pottery room, school room, and military room will look completely new to our guests and we look forward to sharing the museum with you once again.

This work could not have been completed without the help of a grant through the Perry County Community Foundation, many Museum fundraisers, community service workers, and our volunteer board members.


Events

Pictures with santa

Immediately following the Cannelton Christmas Parade, join Santa at the Perry County Museum (old courthouse) for a picture by Bolin Photography. Packages start at $10 and proceeds benefit the Perry County Museum. 

The parade starts at 6 p.m. and we'll begin photo sessions immediately after the parade. No appointment is necessary.

Do you have old photos of Perry County places and people? Please consider donating them to the Perry County Museum archives. If you cannot part with them, let us scan them for you. We would love to have a copy!
