What You'll Find:
Explore the rich history of South West Ohio thanks to an extensive collection of art and artifacts in this award-winning museum.* Four floors featuring over 30,000 square-feet house four art galleries, prehistoric artifacts, Shaker and more.
Commonly referred to as the "Lebanon Museum" or "Warren County History Center", the award-winning** Harmon Museum is housed in historic Harmon Hall. Inside this three-story, 28,000-square-foot, building, visitors explore the rich history of Warren County.
The Robert & Virginia Jones Shaker Gallery offers the largest collection of Shaker artifacts and archives in the world. Our newly renovated Archeological/Native American Exhibit has been called "one of the finest collections outside of the Smithsonian" by a national consultant. It features fossils as well as art and artifacts from Hopewell, Nadina and Sioux Native American cultures. The updated Bruce E. Young Farm Heritage Gallery showcases the tools used by Warren County's agricultural community.
There are four art galleries; a contemporary, folk, classic and exhibition gallery, the Gary Simendinger Gallery, where we showcase the work of noted 20th and 21st Century Ohio artists. We are also always circulating special exhibits so there's something new to look at every time you visit!
