I wasn’t sure about this place before going, but it was so cool. A great way to spend a few hours. I’m bringing everyone I know back!

This place is magical! Kevin is so friendly. He told us about the story behind the collections and the museum. We had a great visit. It's a secret little place in Evanston. Fun to be there for an hour or more. You could feel the passion of the collectors while appreciating the artsy Toby Jugs. It's free admission but unfortunately I didn't bring cash otherwise I would love to donate. I hope this review can help them gain more awareness. As an Evanston resident, I am happy to see such a cute little museum in our neighborhood.
We totally didn't notice this museum until one of the staff told as about it as we walked by it! Very happy we went in. It's a collection of about 8000 Toby jugs of all kinds. Definitely enjoyable.
