Midway Village Museum

Midway Village Museum

The museum depicts American life during the Victorian era through a historic village, gardens, and museum exhibits.

Midway Village Museum, a 137-acre museum campus, is Rockford’s history museum. The main museum center features both permanent and temporary exhibits. The museum also features a historical village representing 1900 America. The Village includes 26 structures and heritage gardens, representing a rural community during the era of 1890-1910. During the months of May through August, interpreters in authentic period clothing lead tours and depict life and customs of the times during weekend events.

We hope you enjoy our work.
