The Lake County Discovery Museum provides a fun, well-rounded museum experience close to home.
Hands-on interactive exhibits introduce the history of Lake County in a fun learning environment. The museum also displays the nation’s largest permanent exhibition on the history and significance of postcards. Changing exhibits in our special exhibition galleries take inspiration from art, history and popular culture.
Experience the new Children’s Learning Gallery, an interactive exhibit area and play space. Designed for children 10 and under and their caregivers, the Gallery features a variety of hands-on activities for kids that are designed to encourage exploration and help children develop motor skills, express their creativity and learn about nature. A mural, ambient sounds and themed exhibits immerse gallery visitors in Illinois’ native tallgrass prairie. Kids are invited to crawl inside the puppet log to put on a show, build their own tallgrass prairie with the prairie play set, chase falling leaves from the leaf blowing log, and build a wigwam.
