The Ituna Museum is currently closed and is undergoing a move to its new location at 303 Main St. N.
The Ituna & District Museum was organized in 1971 as a Homecoming Project of the Ituna Recreation Board. The first curator was Helen Leonard, assisted by organizers Anne (Fred) Buchko, Nettie Zuch, and Helen Howat. Their efforts have kept Ituna history and culture alive through the museum.
On November 25, 2015, the Ituna & District Museum received funding from Community Initiative Fund, Community Places and Spaces Program in the value of $9.800.00. The Ituna & District Museum matched this amount to rehabilitate current building to increase awareness of community history. Within this funding program, the Ituna & District Museum will purchase and install a new furnace, add insulation to the attic and upgrade electrical and lightning in the museum.
A 2010 Centennial Project of the Museum was a Cookbook "A Spoonful of Love and a Cupful of Memories". The Cookbook helps to defray operating expenses and contains many traditional recipes. Order forms for the cookbook are available here
