The mission of McDuffie Museum is to instill in the residents of McDuffie County, especially its youth, an understanding of their heritage and sense of pride in the history of their community. The McDuffie Museum's programs, exhibits and activities advance and promote public knowledge and appreciation of McDuffie County's heritage and the importance of a local history museum in general.

In January 2009, McDuffie Museum opened its doors on Thomson's Main Street with "Key Ingredients: America by Food," an exhibit that came from the Museums on Main Street division of the Smithsonian Institute. Since then, McDuffie Museum has hosted several other exciting exhibits, the most important telling the story about McDuffie County's history, including its first inhabitants -- Native American tribes -- its lost Quaker colony of Wrightsboro, and its residents that played major roles in the nation's history.
