Joliet Area Historical Museum

ADD TO MY TRIP

Unlike any old history museum, the Joliet Area Historical has a lot of fun ways to experience how people used to live. It takes about an hour or two to go through which is great for hyperactive children. Its history is obviously very focused on Joliet, but it also spans the Chicago area as well. My kid’s a video game-nut and had a blast in the Apollo/Houbolt exhbit. There’s a “Lunar Lander Stimulator” where you use controls like the first moon-men and try to land on the “surface of the moon.”
