You are our support!

The Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum receives no program funding from local, state, or federal governments.

It costs an average of $100 per day for the museum to maintain its collections. Without your support, we cannot keep providing historical services to you, the public. The museum has been diligent this year with updating displays to make it a more inviting and accessible space for you to enjoy. We have also been planning for updates on storage and additional displays.  These updates are not included in the daily operations cost.
