Cresthill Illinois Museums
CREST Hill, IL - You've never seen a better place in town than the Crest Hill Natural History Museum. As Wednesday is the 73rd anniversary of the Lidice massacre, it is a good time to take a tour that explains exactly why there is such a strong link between the emerging garden and the history of Chicago's history and culture.
The Historical Society also operates the restored EJ & E Depot 4 Museum, located at the corner of Main Street and West Michigan Avenue in Crest Hill. The newly renovated and modernized Main Street Museum, located at the intersection of North Michigan and Main Streets in the heart of the city, is open regularly during these hours by appointment at 815 - 436 - 4073.
The museum's main exhibition gallery serves as the focal point of the annual Main Street Festival of the Crest Hill Historical Society. The museum opened in 2009 as part of the Tourism Attraction Program, which was funded by a grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources' Tourism Attractions Program.
The funds will be used to hire a museum director, digitize the fossil egg research collection and purchase a new storage unit for the specimens. In addition, the funding allows the museum to properly maintain and improve the collection of Jurica Biology Chart.

Peerbolte said the museum intends to release updated information in the near future, as soon as the state's public health benchmarks allow. To give the experience a modern touch, the museum offers a series of guided tours of the selected interiors of the building, as well as a special exhibition on the history of the building. For the first time in a long time, we are returning to our popular themed tours, including historic tours for children and adults. Other copies of this lithograph are available at the Joliet Museum of Art and the Illinois State Museum in Chicago.
One focus of the scholarship is to enable students and trainees of the BenU to train in the preventive conservation of museums. The museum will create opportunities to improve access to the collection and make the research collection accessible to scientists worldwide.

The well-known reformer Dorothea Dix personally requested the Illinois General Assembly to build a new prison after an inspection of Alton Prison in 1847. A few months later, in 1942, the President-in-exile of Czechoslovakia came to Joliet and attended the inauguration of the original monument in an empty cornfield. Executive Director Greg Peerbolte said: "This was a good time to look at the prisoners at Old Jolie Prison (1858) because the national sanctuary protocol has opened up new perspectives for Americans to lock up. Later, subdivisions were created around the monument, such as the former site of the Episcopal Church of St. John.
