The Newburgh Museum’s mission is to preserve, exhibit and educate all visitors about the history and culture of Newburgh and the surrounding area’s unique river town heritage.  Located on the first floor of the Old Newburgh Presbyterian Church, the museum opened in July 2012.

The permanent displays at the museum include information about the town’s founding, how it got its name, its early industry, a period of decline and how it has changed in modern times. The main exhibit at the museum is changed every few months.

A diverse group of local and regional figures helps guide the Newburgh Museum in support of our mission. Members of the board of directors are elected in accordance with the museum’s bylaws and play an integral role in the life of the museum. More than just supporters of the museum, our directors are community leaders with vested interest in and commitment to the preservation of history in Newburgh, Indiana.
