About the Museum

Debs Museum
A local group starts a march from the Eugene V. Debs Museum.

The Museum is temporarily closed as a preventative measure against the continued spread of COVID-19. Read more about this closing here. 

The Eugene V. Debs Museum is the former house of Eugene V. Debs and Katherine Metzel Debs. After changing hands for many years, it was purchased in 1962 by a small group of Terre Hautians who had a strong admiration for Debs. It is now owned and operated by the Debs Foundation as a free museum.

The interior of the museum features many of Debs’ possessions and other artifacts from his lifetime. The rooms are open for guests to wander, though we count on our guests’ respectful treatment of the collections. 75-minute guided tours are available on a walk-in basis.

The museum is open to the public and admission is free.

A $5 donation is appreciated — you can support the Eugene V. Debs Foundation via an online donation or donate in person at the house!
