  • I was hoping for way more for my entry fee. However the front desk staff we nice and informative. One cool thing you will get to see is a restored economy car from back in the day. Joliet has a ton of history and it can be understood why you couldn't fit it all in one place at one time. If they had a larger facility I bet they would have more to offer the general public.
  • We went for the Halloween bash and had a great time. There were crafts for the kids and various area businesses had tables and games set up. They held a costume parade and it was a blast. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. This is a fantastic museum with lots of neat displays of Joliet history. Definitely worth a visit if you have a couple hours to spend.
  • Awesome museum. The staff is very nice. Everything is in chronological order. Make sure to ask a worker there where is begins because it is confusing. Definitely worth the trip.
  • Very interesting place and definitely worth a stop. Plus the gift shop has tons of Route 66 items.
  • If you don't know a lot about Joliet here's your chance. Very much worth the visit
