A world-class museum in every way! Joliet and Chicagoland are lucky to have this as a nearby resource. I traveled from Indiana and included a prison-tour and a visit to the Old Joliet Iron Works. All 3 were very well curated and enjoyable. Visit all three if you can.

I went for a Blues show and started walking around during a break. I enjoyed looking at all the history of Joliet in such a short period. One of the hosts assisted me with all my questions. I just needed more time but I will return.
