McLean County Museum of History

  Housed in a beautiful old courthouse, this museum has exhibits about Abraham Lincoln’s  work as an attorney in McLean County; galleries covering the arrival of immigrants and how they made the county their home; exhibits on the history of McLean County’s courthouses; and a hands-on area for kids.
  The four immigrant galleries focus on individuals and their families, giving museum visitors an in-depth look at the challenges faced and opportunities found as they and their decedents settled into their new homes. Each gallery covers a different experience - living, working, farming, and creating community from the 1820s to the present time.

 The museum is accessible.

  Parking is on the street, free,  and easy to find. Check the signs. Some spaces are limited to 90 minutes. Museum  40.47995, -88.9943
