Museum of Erie County History
The Museum offers a variety of exhibits. The “Building, Salvaging, Celebrating: Erie’s Relationship with the 1812 Lake Erie Fleet” is currently on exhibit. Guests will be able to view the Queen Charlotte’s Bell, Oliver Hazard Perry’s sword, commemorative items from the celebrations in 1913-2012, and touch pieces of the Niagara. This exhibit is designed to give cultural context to the Battle of Lake Erie and Erie, PA.

Named in honor of distinguished naval officer Admiral Curtze, the Maritime Hall enables visitors to trace Erie’s roots as a naval town, shipbuilding leader and freshwater fishing capital of the world.
Temporary exhibit rooms are located at the exit of the exhibit gallery. Displays are continuously changing and offer presentations on various aspects of Erie County’s diverse and proud history. Currently “Lost Erie” is being exhibited. Join in the rediscovery of businesses lost to history.
