The U.S. Senator Paul Simon Museum, located in Troy, Illinois, is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the late U.S. Senator Paul Simon. The museum seeks to preserve Simon's life-long works, as a newspaper editor/publisher, educator, author, public official and most importantly a respected humanitarian. The museum also focuses on youth civics education as we actively seek to engage citizens of all ages in thoughtful and meaningful conversation and participation within their local, state and federal government. We also encourage "active citizenship" with our local communities as well as the greater global community.
