The Humboldt and District Museum is located in a building originally used as a post office. Permanent exhibits include the original Humboldt telegraph station, St. Peter’s Colony (a group of monks that lived in the area), early businesses in the area, a schoolhouse, a pioneer home, a natural history collection, and a sports hall of fame. There are also various temporary exhibits held throughout the year. The Humboldt and District Gallery is housed in a building that used to be a bank.
