This museum is located in a lovely small town and is surrounded by a park like area. Inside are some amazing gems, mosaics, jade pieces, etc. that are beautifully displayed. It's not a large place, but is well worth the visit. Staff is very welcoming and friendly.

If you have not visited the Lizzadro Museum in Elmhurst, it is time to put it on your calendar. The quality of the pieces on display put the Lizzadro on the same level as a big institution. Additionally, the Lizzadro offers classes for children and adults. I am looking forward to the beading class coming up that will result in... More

The museum part is really intriguing, been stopping here for years and years, still amazed at especially the carved jade inside the carved jade inside the carved jade. And the gift shop is a great learning experience for kids. start them on a cool new hobby here..

The museum is relatively small, but everything is very well displayed. Most of the larger pieces you can see from both sides, and although the museum is dark, most of the art is well lit for viewing. Hubby griped a bit about trying to photograph a few pieces (he never uses flash in an art museum), but although I have... More

I've been coming to the Chicago area to visit friends since 1976. In 25+ vacations, this is my favorite ! We're seen almost every attraction in downtown Chicago. Great art galleries and museums and zoos are in all large cities in the USA. But - Lizzadro is truly unique. The mosaic art looks like oil paintings. But, the Gold Castle... More

The history behind the museum is as fascinating as the contents of it...the artifacts are interesting and it's amazing that it's locally owned by the collectors extended family - worth a stop!

Both kids (10, 14) loved it. I was amazed at the artistic capabilities of the people who made these objects. It looks simple? Yeah right there are things to see and appreciate that took 10 or even 15 years of someone's life to create. And you can't take 1-2 hours to check it out?!? You'd be missing something precious. Quiet,... More

Elmhurst is my hometown, so on a recent trip back, I couldn't pass up a visit to Lizzadro when I found I had some extra time. Great to see the place again, especially since I probably haven't been there since high school! Definitely worth a visit -- and on Fridays, the admission is free (it's pretty minimal on other days...

If you are passing through Elmhurst, and have kids, stop here. It's free on Fridays (I think Elmhurst Art Museum and History museum are also free on Fridays.). Precious things are upstairs--downstairs are interesting interactive things for the kids--and they can choose their own totally-70s-movie version of learning about rock cutting. And the most darling gift shop downstairs--my son's favorites... More

Went to Lizzardo in May when they had the craft fair going on. Because of the other events, admission was free. The museum is pretty amazing; pieces are displayed beautifully, the staff is courteous and knowledgeable, and the displays awe inspiring. Took my husband and I about an hour to walk through and see some of the extra demonstrations they... More
