Joliet Area Historical Museum – a must-see attraction that is affordable and fun for the whole family!

The museum’s main exhibition gallery serves as an introduction to the many stories of the Joliet area and its people.

Travel through time and space!  Walk through a replica of the I&M Canal, window shop on a turn-of-the-century street, take a virtual ride on a replica trolley, live the legend of Route 66, land on the moon in a walk-in simulator and experience space exploration and the Apollo missions.  Temporary exhibit(s) change often in our Special Exhibition Gallery.  There’s always family fun in our discovery room and remember your visit with a souvenir from our gift Shop.
