Last Update: 04/02/2023
Come see our new display cases:
A big thank you to all our volunteers and donors. Thanks to your generosity, the RAM was able to purchase 2 new display cases. Both cases are in the South Room; one contains our school/athletic artifacts and the other is part of the rotating exhibit.
We are pleased to announce our first rotating exhibit of 2023: Railroad History of the Rockford Area. Remember to bring your smartphones as QR codes have been used to increase exhibit interactivity and to allow for the inclusion of more information than a physical sign can contain.
THERE IS NEVER A CHARGE FOR MUSEUM ADMISSION.
WE DEPEND ON MEMBERSHIP DUES, FUND RAISING PROJECTS,
AND FREE WILL DONATIONS WHICH ARE SINCERELY APPRECIATED.
The first Rockford Area Museum was opened in 1976. In 2013 a new RAM replaced the original facility. It offers expanded services and programs and a museum experience that sets a high standard of excellence for small city museums. We are family friendly with exhibits of interest to visitors of all ages from pre-schoolers to senior citizens.
Do you have a request? Maybe we can help!
When the RAM is open, we often receive requests for information about businesses, homes, people, or events from Rockford's history. The ability of our researchers to work on those requests is very limited at this time, but maybe we can help in another way. If you have an inquiry, submit it on our Contact Page with the subject line reading "HISTORY QUESTION". Include your contact information. We will post it here and ask anyone who may be able to help with the answer to contact you or send us the answer so we can share it. Don't be shy. Our website visitors can be a goldmine of information.
FUNDRAISING CONTINUES YEAR AROUND
