The Alexandria Museum is a small house museum in the center of the Village of Alexandria, Licking County, central Ohio. The Museum is volunteer-operated by the Village of Alexandria's Board of Museum Trustees. The collections were first organized into a Museum in 1963, and found their current home in 1992 when the pre-1860 home of the Peebles family was purchased for the purpose.
The Alexandria Museum is currently open March through December on Sundays, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and otherwise by appointment for school and other groups. In April, expanded weekend hours accompany the annual Quilt Month celebration, and expanded hours are usually also scheduled to coincide with other Village events like Fun Days and the Christmas Festival.

FACILITIES are contained in two buildings, the main house and an outbuilding that was originally Dr. Laycock's office circa 1868. The main house is two-story, with narrow steep stairs leading to the second floor. The front porch includes a wheelchair ramp and the downstairs rooms are all wheelchair accessible, however the restroom is not handicapped accessible. The outbuilding is not open to the public, it is currently a privately-operated beauty salon. For additional information about our facilities, email Martha Sturgill.
COLLECTIONS of the Museum include items related directly to the Village of Alexandria and the surrounding St. Albans township, though that relationship might be derivative, for instance we have a collection of woodcarvings done by a Muskingham County man that were donated to us by his nephew who lived in Alexandria. Some items date from the founding of the Village in 1830, but most are from the late 1800s. We have a large collection of prehistoric stone tools as well. Four of our artifacts are shown in the Ohio Memory Project of the Ohio Bicentennial Commission.
