Galena / Jo Daviess County Historical Society and Museum reviews
I loved the town, great cosy place, nice antique stores, friendly people, everyone used a mask. Felt secure more »
We didn't know much about Galena beforehand, but learned a great deal at this little museum. There were many informative videos (and a hologram) about Grant, his generals, Lincoln, and other tidbits..... more »
If you enjoy history and museums, you will love this! I came too Galena for my birthday weekend - which happened to be the same weekend as they were celebrating President Grant's Birthday! Admission was free and some staff were dressed up in period attire handing out birthday cake! It was very cute! The exhibits were wonderful and I learned quite a bit about Galena, the Civil War, and Grant himself! Great place to stop while in Galena!
Beautiful museum that has a lot of information about president Grant. Was well kept and had some unique aspects that are just not available anywhere else. The mine shaft while not as interactive as expected was really cool to see regardless. The small little gift shop is also pretty cool with unique little objects. Nice staff there. They offer some really cool technologically advanced exhibits. The small radio controlled steamboat, the ghost introduction the video pieces on the first and second floor. Really cool, a must see museum.
