DeMoulin Museum

I'm the curator of this attraction. We have moved three blocks to a larger building. Our new address is 205 S. Prairie Street. Thanks to your previous coverage, most of our out-of-state visitors come because they saw us on Roadside America!

[John Goldsmith, 03/07/2018]

A larger building means room for more pranks. Good news!
