Now at the Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter Museum . . .
A local Springfield couple who traveled extensively, the Trutters exhibited a love of lifelong learning and desired to share their values wih the LLCC community.
From the late 1950s through the mid 1970s, the Trutters traveled throughout the world. From the many countries and principalities they visited over the years, they collected a vast array of art, artifacts, and other cultural items of interest.
Upon Mr. Trutter’s death in 2000, much of their extensive collection was bequeathed to Lincoln Land Community College with a generous stipend to establish a museum on the college's Springfield campus. We proudly administer the Trutter Museum as a unique and treasured legacy left to benefit all students, faculty, staff, and the entire community.
Today, the museum regularly features special exhibits, workshops, and lectures that promote cultural awareness and bring other parts of the world to LLCC and the greater Springfield area.
Tuesday through Thursday – 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Mid-May through Mid-August, or any other hours, by appointment.
