My mother and sister had never been through the museum. We thoroughly enjoyed the presentations, artifacts and historical information displayed. It is interesting to learn about the city of Joliet area and how it evolved! As former parishioners of the Ottawa St. Methodist Church it was fascinating to see the transformation from church to museum! Highly recommended!

It was a nice experience. We got there an hour before closing; however, we were able to go through most of the exhibits.

Arriving early allowed for easy parking. The museum was clean and I learned a lot about the history of Joliet. Most surprising was the role that John Houbolt served in the moon landing.

This museum was very interesting; not a huge place, but we did spend a good amount of time there. It has hands on experiences and some facts that were new to me. For the price, I would definitely recommend it.

Staff was very friendly, it’s 2 floors of displays and everything is very nicely displayed and cleaned. Parking was free, and time went by rather fast, when we finished looking at everything and made it back to our car, 2 1/2 hours had passed already.

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.
