By All Accounts: The Story of Elmhurst
Experience the history of Elmhurst through an innovative exhibit that takes visitors on a journey of discovery exploring how the city has changed and grown over the past 165 years. The Museum’s entire second floor gallery has been transformed into a state-of-the-art, engaging exhibit with touch-screen displays, fascinating object towers, rare collection photos, and graphics that jump into motion. See the interactive tabletop map, rated as one of "50 Museum Marvels" by the Chicago Tribune (July 2017). View a documentary on Elmhurst history in the mini-theatre. Check out the changing History Spotlight and a feature about the Glos Family and Glos Mansion in the 2nd floor hallway.
