I didn’t know what to expect from this place. Amazingly I think we spent over a hour there. A lot on President Reagan and the Indians. more »
It is free of charge but I would definitely recommend to leave a donation. It is a must stop when you in Dixon IL. Start your visit here if not at Chamber of Commerce in downtown. Open all seasons ! more »
Very nice museum with lots of very well-done exhibits. Worth your time.
Nice area to sit outside and enjoy your meal.
