  • A variety of things to see at this museum. Rocks, stuffed animals, historic items of all types.. Some dollhouses which the children may enjoy. I think younger children wouldn't enjoy this museum...  more »
  • It is said that "good things come in small packages." The Kibbe Hancock Museum proves this. Despite it's somewhat limited space, this gem has wonderfully organized, well captioned and varied...  more »
  • This is one of the best museums at the local level that we have ever visited, The collections have breadth and depth and are in excellent condition although some TLC and some $ would go a long way.....  more »

  • Very interesting museum of local history. Lots of different artifacts: civil war, WWI, WWII, taxidermied wildlife, old children's toys, caskets, sports memorabilia, and much more. Very worth checking out.
  • I love coming here! I feel like there are so many cool things to look at in the museum!
  • Forget the bogus jail run by the LDS church, and hit up the spectacular museum across the street. You’ll see way more amazing things, like exhibits on funeral customs, Lincoln’s funeral, the local hospital, spectacular rocks and animal anomalies. It’s free, but totally worthy of a sizeable donation. 10/10 would incorporate it in to any future Illinois road trips.
  • It's was a very interesting and a great tour. Making plans to get back there again soon.
  • Is a WOMAN smarter than a MAN? A hidden GEM. Dr. ALICE KIBBE was a woman WAY before her time. If your an Illinois history buff or a rock hound this is the place for you. Small but mighty. This place has a lot of interesting tid bits about forgottonia.
