“Very nice little museum”

Glen Ellyn Historical Society
Reviewed 13 November 2017 via mobile

It's not the biggest Museum in the world, but it has a lot of very interesting artifacts about Glen Ellyn and its history. One thing that I was a little disappointed about, was that there was no information with regard to pre Pioneer history. Many historians claim that the Trail of Tears actually began in this very area. I would have liked to have learned more about that. Unfortunately the museum tries to focus purely on the positive while trying to distract from anything negative in the past. Very nice staff, very accommodating. A cute gift shop with a lot of very cute things.

This is a great place to get a historical perspective of Glen Ellyn. They even helped us find out the history of our home.

This location is well supplied with books and info on Glen Ellyn, specifically. Their programming is solid and interesting. There are some members who are very well informed and great resources.

Glen Ellyn, like most suburban areas, has pretty much built over its history and in the process, like much of America, leaves one feeling that anywhere is like everywhere. The Historical Society does preserve what remains of the village's past. I have used its collection of papers and artifacts to explore long-forgotten individuals who really did contribute local and national history.

This is a very small but relevant museum in Glen Ellyn. So much history and lots of fun things to look at and remember.
