Museum Day has been a long-standing tradition in Elmhurst over the last 25 years when the city recognizes the many positive contributions its local museums make to the cultural fabric of the community. Each May, Elmhurst museums come together to open their doors during the free Museum Day celebration.
After a two-year hiatus, the Elmhurst Art Museum and Elmhurst History Museum are back and ready to welcome guests of all ages for the 2022 Elmhurst Museum Day on Sunday, May 15 from 1 to 5 p.m. Visitors are welcome to park at one location and walk or board the complimentary trolley to explore exhibits and participate in free family-friendly activities at each museum.
Limited free parking is available at each site and nearby City of Elmhurst parking garages. Both museums are located within a few blocks of the Elmhurst Metra train station (Union Pacific West Line).
The Elmhurst History Museum is located at 120 E. Park Ave. The Elmhurst Art Museum is located at 150 Cottage Hill Ave. in Wilder Park.
