The nationally accredited Dunn Museum holds a treasure trove of history about Lake County, Illinois. Visitors are invited to take a chronological walk from prehistoric times to the present through interactive exhibitions, authentic artifacts, reproductions, and audiovisual displays. Each gallery includes a touch screen that directs visitors to different forest preserves to see firsthand where the history took place. The Museum also features temporary special exhibitions.
The Museum is named for Bess Bower Dunn (1877–1959), Lake County’s first official historian. Bess traveled throughout the county photographing historic sites and meeting with residents to record their stories. She personally acquired many of the artifacts and documents that are now part of the Dunn Museum’s priceless collections.
