Welcoming and happy staff. Tons of great local information throughout the museum. Exhibits definitely show pride in Joliet's beginnings. We (two adults) enjoyed the museum for something different to do on a summer weekend.

Glad we got Groupon discount cause wouldn't be worth the regular price of $12. Was very hot in the upstairs section.

About 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.
