Midway Village Exhibits
In addition to our Victorian-era Village, a Main Museum Center at Midway Village Museum offers visitors the opportunity to engage and explore history through interactive exhibits in the more than 20,000 square feet of gallery spaces. The Main Museum Center houses six exhibition galleries, collections storage, classrooms, workrooms, administrative offices, library, audio-visual room, and the Museum Gift Store. This section includes links to some of our most popular exhibits, including our acclaimed "Many Faces, One Community" exhibit. This gallery depicts the history of immigration to Rockford and how our community developed through the perseverance of immigrants from many countries and cultures. The Old Dolls’ House Museum is located across the parking lot in its own building. The Millhouse is an 1860s recreated mill with functioning waterwheel located on Lake Severin and can be toured by appointment only. The Main Museum Center is handicap accessible.
