Glenn Miller Birthplace Museum

122 West Clark Street

The Glenn Miller Birthplace Society would like to thank all the individuals, organizations and corporations who contributed to make the Glenn Miller Birthplace Museum a reality.  Without your help the Museum would not have been possible. We would like to especially thank our Sister City of Tamana, Japan: our Sister School, Tamana GHS; the Glenn Miller Festival Committee in Tamana; and Mr. Hideomi Aoki and the GMBS Japan Branch for their efforts to support this project.

We completed Phase I of the Museum Displays for our Grand Opening on June 10, 2010 and we are continuing to accept donations online through PayPal for Phase II and Phase III of the Museum Displays.  We plan to include some computerized interactive displays in the last two phases which will add to the interest and excitement of the attraction.  If you would like to help us honor this great American hero, please click on the button to the right to make a tax-deductible donation for the future Museum Displays honoring Glenn Miller. This link will redirect you to PayPal's secure website where you can make your donation with most major credit cards.  We will greatly appreciate your help!

Nice little jewel in the heartland. One of the few famous person's homes that still has the out house.

I must admit I am slightly bias, but this is a neat museum and worth a visit. Glenn Miller was a person of interst as a child. I studied the trombone as a result. I was shocked at how well put together this place is. The staff really spent the time to share not only information on Glenn but also the city of Clarinda and thier many events that surround this style of music. I only wish I had more time to watch the entire movie that plays in the auditorium.
