This is hands down the best museum in the area. Ask questions when you're here; you'll learn more. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful in finding info that they don't know.
The Kankakee County Museum is an amazing gem. It's a must visit for new and longtime area residents. I recommend it for all ages. Interesting local and war history. The museum is clean and the exhibits are nice with some interactive places. A small gift shop is located here as well. There's also a one room schoolhouse and Dr. Small's house on the property. Behind the museum is a cute little trail for exercise. Last, but definitely not least - the staff are very friendly and caring.
