The Payette County Museum is open Wednesday - Saturday from 12 noon until 4pm. Admission is free, and donations are welcome. Payette County Idaho, consists of the towns of Fruitland, New Plymouth, and Payette which is the county seat.
Members of the Museum Board of Directors are elected from the members of the Payette County Historical Society. The current president is Patty Theurer, the museum administrator is Ann Curtis, and many volunteers offer their time, energy, and talents to keeping the museum running and protecting the history of our county. The PCHS membership meeting is in the museum on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 11am. All PCHS members and prospective members are invited to attend these meetings.
