We will be closed Monday, September 6th in honor of Labor Day
Hello Folks! Unfortunately, Evanston has reinstated mask mandates, due to the Covid Delta Variant. We know it's a hassle. But, it's the law and we ask everyone to comply when entering the shop. Road work is ongoing. But, the public parking lot will remain available just West of the shop, at 721 Main. On Saturdays, you will also be able to keep parking on the street. Thank you again for your support & understanding!
We welcome local schools and clubs to choose our museum as a destination for their field trip or outing. As always, visiting our museum collection is absolutely free of charge.
A few things we'd like to call attention to:
Please call at least one week in advance during store hours to schedule your group visit and read our guidelines below before scheduling your group visit.
Remember that all visits are self-guided, and that each group is responsible for the conduct of its members.
Make sure to have an appropriate number of adult chaperones for your group. Minors must be accompanied by an adult both in the store and in the museum.
Due to space limitations, groups of more than twenty people (including chaperones) are not permitted in the museum all at once. If your group is larger than twenty people, we ask that you divide the group so that one portion can enjoy shopping upstairs in our store while others see the museum collection in the basement, alternating with each other.
The storefront is wheelchair accessible; however the museum is only accessible on foot by a staircase.
No strollers are permitted in the museum.
Photography is permitted on a case-by-case basis.
To schedule your group visit, call (847) 866 7374.
