Museum Information

Please note: Thanksgiving Week schedule

“Windows at the Fox” will be open every night through the weekend. The animals in the big window magically come to life from 4 pm to midnight every night! Enjoy the animated animals as they discuss their favorite classic Christmas movies.

Our exhibit in the Fox Theatre, “Then and Now ~ Downtown for Christmas”, is open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm this week. The museum will be closed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday so our staff and volunteers may spend the entire Thanksgiving holiday with their families. Both exhibits are on display through January 17th.

Because of our Phase One museum construction in the Barth’s building connecting to the building just east of Barth’s,  the next museum exhibit will be located in our historic Fox Theatre at 157 Park Central Square.

History Museum on the Square is a private, not-for-profit organization that began in 1975 as a Bicentennial project. The space for the History Museum office was in historic Old City Hall and was provided by the City of Springfield, but we have now moved our offices near our new museum space on Springfield’s historic Park Central Square. Our new business office is located in the beautiful Holland Building in Suite 404 ( 4th floor.) As a not-for-profit organization, we continue to raise the necessary program and operating funds through admissions, gift shop sales, special events, memberships, donations and grants. Our current exhibit location is part of our exciting museum expansion space at the museum’s historic Park Central Square location, 157 Park Central Square.  Our dedication to these beautiful buildings and their location on Springfield’s beloved public square, has inspired our new name: History Museum on the Square. Visit us today!


The historic Fox Theatre at 157 Park Central Square is now the location of current exhibits at the History Museum on the Square.
