  • It is so much fun to visit the center with ever changing exhibits and special programs for children of all ages.  more »
  • Few small-towns offer what GHCM offers in the way of a town museum. The center is doing a fabulous job maintaining the culture and history of Grayslake and making it available to the community...  more »
  • This place is really cool. The staff is really nice and willing to share knowledge about their museum and the city. There are 2 levels on the main level and they also have an annex. In the main building they have all sorts of artifacts from almost the beginning of the city. Really worth the time to come here. In the annex they have an original fire truck from the 50s that still works and they use it in the parades, also few other vehicles and machinery. The best part it is free to come here, but I would leave a donation though
  • The ladies where most helpful
