11am-4pm Museum Open

May 21, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT

The Museum has seven permanent exhibits that tell the rich history of our community. Visit our Exhibits page for a brief description of each.
Our entire museum is kid-friendly. Anywhere you see a red hand that is your chance to explore, to touch, to experience. Ride in our model 1910 race car decked out with helmet and safety glasses. Set up shop in Kretchmer’s grocery store – and don’t forget to wrap all the packages for the customers. Riffle through trunks of early Elgin immigrants. Listen to the Song of Elgin. Blast the car horns of the past. Don’t forget to ask the Museum docent for a scavenger hunt when you visit!
Adult admission is $3.00; students are $1; no charge for kids under 5 years; no charge for members.
