About The Quincy Museum

The historic Newcomb-Stillwell Mansion, the home of the Quincy Museum, is a wonderful example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture set in the heart of Quincy's Maine Street. Visitors are treated to tours of the restored first floor of the home where they can see what it would be like to live in a high style Victorian Mansion in the 1890's.

Third Floor Exhibits


Head up to our third floor and enjoy exhibits designed for both children and adults. Wander through our Dinotopia exhibit and learn about dinosaurs. You can also handle replica fossils, put your foot in a cast of a dinosaur footprint and see real fossils.

Mississippi Wildlife

Our Mississippi Wildlife room takes you on a journey through local landscapes with local animal mounts such as deer, elk, bald eagles and other local creatures. Visit our river bottom and pond displays too. Kids will be fascinated when they look through our microscope at a rogue's gallery of nasty little creatures.

Native Americans

Don't miss our updated Native American Room! This room features lots of fun activities for children. Young visitors can play in our wickiup, carry babies on our cradle board, dress up in Native American clothing, play games and do activities. A large play table allows children to make their own Native American village. All the while, adults can enjoy viewing a wonderful selection of Native American artifacts that tell the story of the Native Americans who once lived in the Midwest.
