You don’t have to travel to a metro area to enjoy an afternoon at a museum. Here in Kokomo, we have three museums where you can learn about the community’s history and also the role Kokomo played in shaping our nation.

Elwood Haynes Museum

Tour the home of Elwood Haynes, a remarkable innovator. You’ll see exhibits about his role in the great Indiana Gas Boom, his automotive inventions, metallurgical discoveries, and the companies he founded.

The museum is located in Haynes’ former residence at 1915 S. Webster St., on the south end of Highland Park.

Seiberling Mansion

Once home to wealthy industrialist Monroe Seiberling and later to George Kingston, this beautiful mansion is now home to the Howard County Museum. Visitors can tour a restored Victorian home as well as exhibits of Howard County history. The museum is located at 1200 W. Sycamore St.
