A local museum or local history museum is a museum that covers local history. Its collection normally includes objects with a local connection of some sort. Such museums are often small in nature and have a low budget for their running costs. Entry costs are normally low as well.
A local museum covering a city is sometimes called a city museum and a local museum covering a town is sometimes called a town museum.
