  • The Eugene V Debs Museum exceeded my expectations in every regard. The artifacts from Eugene Debs' life are well preserved and cared for. The house itself is in amazing shape considering what it has gone through. The tour is amazing. The presentation follows Debs' life and career through 4 major themes. It helps a visitor image Debs as a whole person; as a leader in the labor movement as well as a husband, son, worker, comrade, etc. You can think you're familiar with Debs' life and work until you visit the museum. There is so much to take in that I could have stayed for almost an entire day. I will be going back. I cannot recommend touring this wonderful piece of Indiana history enough. The gift shop has some pretty amazing things too!
  • A great house museum to visit! With Covid restrictions, it's by appointment only, which is understandable! On the third floor, or attic, there are some amazing murals to see! Allison was great and very well-spoken! They also have t-shirts, buttons, and some other things in their gift shop. Great place to experience some local and even national history!
