The History Center is located next to Forest Glen Elementary School, one block south of the intersection of Geneva Rd., St. Charles Rd., and N. Main St. One mile north of downtown Glen Ellyn and the train station.
There is free parking in our lot. Additional parking is located behind Stacy's Tavern Museum. If school is closed, you may park by the elementary school, or across the street at the District 41 Administration Building. There is also parking on nearby residential streets, but watch for directional signs as not all side streets allow parking on both sides.
Hours: Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Around holidays, please check our hours before you come,
as we close most holiday weekends.
If you are coming to visit our Archives, we recommend calling before you come. Some questions we can answer for you, but we want to make sure assistance is available when you're here! Sometimes the archives are not available due to programs or rentals, or other scheduling conflicts.

There is a wheelchair ramp at the back of the museum. However, there are only stairs to the second floor of the building.
