Come Visit! You'll LOVE us!

Walk through the former Wayne County Jail and Sheriff's Residence.

Learn about its history and about some of those who lived or 'visited' inside its walls.

Guided tours with an educator last approximately 90 minutes and include all

three floors of the Museum and, in the summer, the Carriage House.

Please call in advance to schedule a tour!

ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: Due to the historic nature of the buildings, handicap accessibility is limited. The first and second floors of the Museum are accessible, but at this time, our basement exhibition space is not. Additionally, only the first floor of our seasonal Carriage House is accessible. 

To schedule a guided tour in advance, email 

or call us at (315) 946-4943
