The West Chicago City Museum collects objects and artwork that relate to the history of the City and surrounding region. A glimpse of life can be witnessed through the objects of the past. These objects are cared for by the Museum and used in exhibits and research to display the rich history of this area.
Of special interest are artifacts that represent our main categories of collecting: Economic Life, Government, Transportation, Natural Environment, Community and Lifestyle. Of the thousands of items in the collections, there are numerous objects related to daily life, railroads, entertainment, pursuit of the arts and business.
The collections grow primarily through donation. Items for consideration are given careful evaluation to determine if they fit the museum’s collections. If you have a potential donation, please call (630) 231-3376 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
