[ARCHIVED] 'Great Midwestern Road Trip' Exhibit Opens in Phase 4


NEW!  The Great Midwestern Road Trip

Opening Soon through October 11, 2020

NOTE: The exhibit will open when we are given state approval which we expect as soon as the Restore Illinois/Phase 4 plan is announced.  

Pack up the station wagon and take a nostalgia-fueled journey to the classic Midwest summer vacation of the 1940s through 1970s. Explore the iconic destinations Chicago area families visited and what they encountered along the way—from roadside attractions and tourist traps to memorable resorts and restaurants. See family vacation photos, video, maps, kitschy souvenirs, road signs and more. Pick up a family guide to explore the gallery and play road trip bingo. Online reservations are required, visits capped at one hour. Limit: 5 people per group. Only 15 visitors allowed in the museum per hour. All visitors will be required to wear face masks for entry. Sponsored by: Community Bank of Elmhurst and Feze Roofing.
