Museum with interactive exhibits on the trenches of WWI, the beaches of WWII and the rice paddies of Vietnam.

The tanks outside were incredible to get up close to. My husband and son are huge military buffs and were impressed to see the tanks on display outside on the grounds. I myself tagged along but was not bored at all looking at the tanks. Inside the museum are wonderful displays depicting all phases of wars that the 1st was involved in. The grounds had wonderful gardens to wander through. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Tivoli Theatre Downers Grove

Reviewed By 82mickiem - Downers Grove, United States

This place is so cool. A vintage theater that has been modernized with sound and other modern amenities, but retains the beautiful charm of the old world theater including amazing light up ceiling. Live Oregon on the weekends. They also sell alcohol which is a nice plus. Prices are reasonable and it’s truly an experience

DuPage Children's Museum

Reviewed By lyubovv416 - Great Barrington, United States

My son is 8y.o. and it takes us 45 -60 min. to get there but totally worth it. Kids are engaged in numerous activities while learning about electricity, kinetics, magnetism, etc.It feels more like a huge playground rather than a museum. They even have an area where kid can make something out of wood using real tools ( hammer, saw, waise, screwdriver, nails). Absolutely love it!

Lynfred Winery

Reviewed By PattiHunt - Roselle, United States

2nd year in a row that my daughter and I have ventured out in chilly February weather for an opportunity to relax in their VIP room with 3 wines that are matched with their homemade truffles for her birthday. We need to go more often as truly this is a nice way to celebrate. I like that they have multiple dates to do this event which is centered around a Valentine’s theme. Making this a yearly must-do.

Billy Graham Center Museum

Reviewed By 866TaylorB - Chicago, United States

To this day, some people aren't aware that the world-famous evangelist Billy Graham began his ministry as a student at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. The Billy Graham Center Museum, opened in 1980, is designed to help visitors "extend their understanding of the good news about Jesus" and contains exhibits about the history of Christian evangelism in the United States and the ministry of Billy Graham. Located at 500 College Avenue on the Wheaton College campus, is is open from 10 to 5 Tuesday through Saturday. It also is the primary location for many of the college's Bible and theology classes. It is a family-oriented museum with rare artifacts and interactive displays that begin with the early history of Christian evangelism and its influence on American society and climax with a powerful walk-through presentation of the Gospel message. The museum, which consists of 20,000 square feet of permanent and temporary exhibit space, starts with the Rotunda of Witnesses, which houses nine stunning tapestries depicting great witnesses for the Gospel, and proceeds to the History of Evangelism in America, then the Cross of the Millennium, the Life and Ministry of Billy Graham and Walk through the Gospel. Another interesting exhibit is the Life of George Beverly Shea, the beloved singer at Graham's crusades around the world.
