I went there to do some genealogic research, not expecting to find anything interesting other than the facts I needed. But the place sucked me in! Spent well over an hour browsing through the exhibits.

Nice, small museum. Worth taking a look if you're in the area! Was with friends taking in the sites of downtown Elmhurst and the college campus. Nice area to walk around.

The Elmhurst History Museum always has fantastic interactive exhibits. There is a great new one on the history of Elmhurst, and the rotating exhibits have covered topics from Candy to Marion Mahony Griffin. Always worth an hour visit. Enjoyable every time we've visited.

Good rainy day attraction mainly for adults. Two floors of exhibits detailing Elmhurst history and famous residents. No admission fee, but a donation is appreciated.
