The Museum of Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee History seeks to promote the unique natural, historical and cultural heritage of the Culver area by collecting, preserving, interpreting and disseminating artifacts and other research materials. In our community, we seek to foster conviviality and engagement from all walks of life by being the natural repository for families and individuals to share their stories and memories. We also seek to serve the broader research community as a professional, self-sustaining, small local museum both on-site and online.
