You’ll easily spot our MUSEUM ON MAIN on the south side of Tiskilwa’s three-block business district. In case you’re concerned when you see the 18 steps of the former Methodist Church building (where our museum is housed), don’t worry – most exhibits are on the lower level, and our entire facility is handicapped accessible.
You can visit our Museum on Main “Where the past is present” on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., or call Ed at 815.646.4016 to open it up almost anytime. Visitors are special to us! We also host a public program of historical interest on the second Monday night of each month, March through November.
Recognized in 2010 as “Volunteer Institution of the Year” by the Illinois Association of Museums, Tiskilwa Historical Society offers six galleries of a hands-on experience with Tiskilwa’s colorful past: Native American artifacts, village, military and school memorabilia, Hennepin Canal construction photos, old farm implements, early domestic items, railroads, churches, toys of the past, and quite a bit more.
