Collinsville Historical Museum

Friends of the Museum

The museum is operated by a dedicated group of people who donate their time and talents to insure the smooth operation of the museum.


The Friends group also organizes several fund-raisers a year that support the operating expenses of the Museum. Some of our Friends serve as Museum volunteers as well.


Whether you want to be involved in all aspects of the group or if you just want to enjoy good company... or anything in between, please know that your membership goes a long way in sustaining the Museum.


Yearly dues are $25 per year... We cordially invite anyone who would like to join our organization to call the office (618) 344-1834

or email us at office@collinsvillemuseum.org


The Friends of the Collinsville Historical Museum meet six times a year for dinner meetings to enjoy a wonderful variety of guest speakers. All meeting are held in the basement meeting room of the Collinsville Pubic Library.
