Join us for Opening Days at the History Museum on the Square. Our Park Central Square buildings (conveniently located on historic Route 66) have been restored to preserve the rich history of our city.

The museum’s six permanent galleries include:
** Native Crossroads at the Spring
**Trains, Trolleys and Transportation: Children’s Education Area, complete with a trolley time machine!
** Pioneers and Founders at the Crossroads
**The Civil War in Springfield
**Wild Bill Hickok and the American West, try the immersive shooting chamber and experience the Hickok-Tutt shootout firsthand!
**Birthplace of Route 66, trace the Mother Road along a 66-foot long timeline and map!

These galleries tell the stories of significant events in Springfield and create dialogues that will foster examinations of unique aspects of Springfield, Greene County and its people. A rich and vast collection of artifacts, photographs, and the “voices of history” are combined using innovative technologies to tell the stories of the crossroads.
