“Small museum but worth a visit”

Joseph Moore Museum
Ranked #8 of 24 things to do in Richmond
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 March 2013

I took my nieces (ages 6 and 7) for a museum visit. I hadn't been to the museum in close to 15 years and I can't say much has changed though they did have a few hands on activities for children which kept the girls entertained. The student (the museum is staffed by college students) was very accommodating and friendly. We were the only ones in the museum and the student checked on us often to see if we had questions. The musem is now open Saturdays and Sundays, plus a few days during the week so check their schedule online or call. They also have storytime for small children on occasion.

What a great pop in this was, both awe-inspiring and educational. Do not miss it, for the kid in you or the kids you care about.

Joseph Moore is located on the lovely Earlham College campus. My young son loves coming here to see the dinosaur bones and the Egyptian mummy! Nice displays of Indiana wildlife as well. The museum is small and hours are a little sporadic, but worth a visit.

This museum was fun for the whole family. My boys loved the giant pre-historic mammals, the snakes and the big greenish lizard. The story of the mummy that was on display is fascinating. This museum is small but worth your time. It was perfect because the boys didn’t get overwhelmed and cranky. Just the right size museum for young ones and it's was FREE! Can't ask for more. Oh, they have a nice gift shop too.
