The Andrew County Museum is housed in a modern 14,000 sq. ft. facility. The addition of the 4,000 square foot permanent exhibit, Rural Way of Life, focuses on the people and places of Andrew county from 1841-2001. Here you will learn about the families, farms, towns, social life, and community spirit. Take some time to go back in time and see how the pioneers and then more modern times have changed and yet how somethings stay the same.
