  • We actually stopped in for info on Route 66 and were greeted by a very informative gentleman who gave us info about the Illinois Route 66. Also, good pamphlets to take with us. There was a short movie...  more »

  • The renovations for the banquet hall look amazing. Great place for a wedding or a work event. The museum itself has some pretty neat things, especially for just being in Joliet.
  • Great experience at a charity event. Wonderful displays of local history. Done in a way that works for all ages.
  • Set up very nice. Great exhibits. Nice staff. Definitely worth the visit.
  • What a surprise! I didn't think much of it when walking inside, but there is a lot more inside than I expected. If you're looking for something to do in downtown Joliet, it's worth a visit.
  • The free Route 66 myself is a bit sparse, but the local history museum upstairs had a number of nice exhibits.
