They have done a great job preserving our country's past. The artifacts are labeled and questions can be answered by the helpful staff. Good place for families.

Guides are good. No real shortcomings. Not a huge place but the displays are interesting. Interesting area history.

It's obvious the staff cares a good deal about their exhibits; when we visited there was a wonderful SW Indian exhibit, with a number of kachina dolls and baskets--very nicely done (this is a rotating exhibit; next summer it'll be Alaska natives). This museum profiles artifacts found at local... More

A large collection of artifacts and facts as well. The staff is friendly and very helpful helping you learn or research what you need. Funding is sparse so they do the best with what they have.

Many years of accumulated artifacts tell the story of the natives of this area. Books, bones, tools, toys and clothes assembled by volunteers are proudly on display. I learned a few things. Volunteers are happy to answer questions.

Its neat to go see if you have a couple mins of nothing to do. Other than that I would not plan a trip to see it.

The Indian museum is behind the Tech Center in Willoughby. There is a small sign out by the road and one on the door. As you enter there are display cases filled with the artifacts of Prehistoric peoples which have been recovered in Lake County. There are pictures of the digs and maps of where the items were found.
