  • At first, I thought the museum was just an ordinary place. But my family and I got so interested when we saw the museum. We learned so much especially the US-Vietnam war.  more »
  • This is a wonderful museum for those interested in history and the military. The restaurant in the visitor center was perfect for lunch. The indoor museum is informative and great for anyone. The outdoor tank park is great for kids and war buffs. The gardens on the museum grounds are gorgeous. The house tour was great too! The best part: $5 entry fee per car and no other costs
  • Beautiful place as we visited it for a family picnic on a fine sunny day! The Museum is dedicated to the First Infantry Division & exhibits Interactive presentation of the military history. There is no Admission fee to the museum but there is a parking fee for the park. Parking fee is between $2 / $5 for cars & $40 / $80 for limousines & buses depending on the passenger capacity. If you are a History lover then you can spend your quality time here. It remains closed during the entire month of January. General timings are 10 AM - 5 PM which keeps changing month on month basis so it's better to check the timings before you visit it. There's a Tank park displaying war tanks from WW. You can also explore diaries, letters and artifacts from WWI here. Museum holds events pertaining History & Military events, further details can be found on the official website.
  • A very interesting museum with interactive displays representing the military history of the first infantry division. I was really impressed with the walk through exhibit that makes you feel as though you really are in the middle of combat. There are actual tanks lining the path to and from the museum that the kids can climb on for fun. #CitiExperts @Localguides
  • Experiencing the First Division Museum at Cantigny, 1s151 Winfield Road, 1s151, Wheaton, IL 60189 personally is quite amazing to see what our troops experiences would've been like. I'd like to encourage everyone to take the time to go through all the exhibits and also tour the tanks displayed outside of the main museum building as well.
  • Great place for anyone. Very educational and hands-on interactions of movies, props, and stages of war of battles with real life scenes. Lots of guns, shells, tanks that are outside which you can climb and let the children play on.
