Welcome to the website of the Champaign County Historical Museum! The Museum is located at First and University in Champaign, Illinois. We are a private, non-profit organization and our mission is to discover, collect, preserve, exhibit, study, and interpret artifacts significant to the heritage of Champaign County, Illinois. We provide formal and informal educational programs about the County’s history and the Museum’s collections to interpret that history to the public. If your group will number 10 or more, please call at least a week ahead so we may be sure to have adequate staff to provide service for you. If you wish to contact us, use our contact form.
