Joliet Area Historical Museum

By highlighting the goings-on in the community of Joliet, The Joliet Area Historical Museum scans the entirety of American history from the perspective of the town's inhabitants. Housed inside the former Ottawa Street Methodist Church, multimedia exhibits artfully assembled from audio-visual displays, touch screens, and life-size models illustrate the stories plucked from the eventful timelines of the town and its people.

Occupying two full stories, permanent exhibit The Soaring Achievements of John C. Houbolt honors the life and work of former resident Dr. Houbolt, who had a primary role in NASA's race to the moon. The exhibit's life-size Lunar Lander even allows guests to step inside and glimpse the accommodations and controls, revealing a control panel more complicated than a single button labeled "Go to Moon." In addition to its permanent collection, the museum also keeps an active calendar full of special events.

Great deal for a cool little museum
Chris T. · August 27, 2016
I have a heart for Joliet and this whole area so I really loved the museum. The museum was a wonderful history of the area. The facility is beautiful and there was so much to see and hear. I loved the introduction movie and the trolley car experience. I highly recommend it if you love history,  this area and the Rt. 66 history.

It was a very nice museum, my parents came from Pennsylvania to visit my family and we took them here and they really enjoyed it. We've been several times, it's a nice museum that tells a great story of Joliet.
