Included in this museum is a pictorial exhibit depicting life on the campus of the Genoa Indian School. In 1990, the Genoa U.S. Indian School Foundation was founded to support additions to the buildings, organize Indian School reunions, and to preserve the heritage of this national historical site.

The Genoa Historical Museum is located on Main Street and houses the Allen B. Atkins Pawnee Indian Artifact Collection. Artifacts in this collection were found within a five mile radius of Genoa. Other features include collections of the Mormons and an exhibit of Genoa history.
