Inside the Carnegie Center


Our Exhibits

After the completion of our Capital Campaign for the Carnegie Building reopening in 2015, We took the next step and completed our Phase I Exhibit back in 2019 which offers an overview of our city's history starting with the Ford Motor Company Plant and the Steel Mill. These exhibits capture what it means to be a true Lorainite! We are currently moving towards collecting money to sustain our Phase II exhibit which will inhabit the more unique qualities of our city and capture the true meaning of community engagement and enrichment.
