The Cedar County Historical Society is here to serve you. Are you looking for genealogical information, interested in local history, or want to see a huge collection of Cedar County artifacts?  We've got it all, so stop in to the museum and visit!  

Summer Hours

The museum will be opened for extended hours for the summer from April 4 through Sept 26 this year.  Our Summer Hours will be Tuesday 10-7, Thursday 10-4, Saturday 10-2.  We will return to our current hours starting in October.  We are hoping this will give families and patrons who work during the day an opportunity to come out and enjoy the museum.  This will be a bit of an experiment and its success will determine if we do this again next year.  Looking forward to seeing you at the museum. 

Interest Survey


In order to keep the museum exhibits interesting and expand the website in a manner that will be valuable to you; I need to know what you find interesting, what you want to learn more about, basically I need your opinions and feedback.  The information will be invaluable to me to ensure I’m sharing information that is of value to you. I also appreciate any thoughts and suggestions you may have that are not on the survey or that may come to you after the survey is done. The Cedar County Historical Society and Museum is here to serve you as well as the citizens and friends of Cedar County and to do that best is to know what you want and need from us.  The pictures on the top of this page are just a few of the places, things, end events the Cedar County Historical Society currently shares with the public; if you don't have something in mind already to share in the survey the pictures may get you to thinking about what you would like to see.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Tanya at the museum 563.886.2899.
