  • By far the best county museum in the country. We spent over 2 hours there and wasnt able to take it all in. There was a tremendous amount of information on Lincoln and much much more. Definitely...  more »
  • Worth visiting. The display is excellent. Students are free of charge while adult have $5 fee - worth it.  more »

  • The McLean County Museum is magnificent. Before going I really did not expect much, and I was wrong! The vinyettes were so well arranged and informative. I highly recommend everyone to go to this museum, as you will not be disappointed!
  • To begin with, the architecture of the building and the historical downtown is beautiful. Our favorite spot inside is the children's room with antique toys and some down on the farm activities and dress up clothes. The dome is gorgeous as well as the marble everything! You can feel the history, highly recommend!
