Ale Fest visit

Very well maintained grounds and great place for weekend activities/attractions. Parking can be a bit of a challenge, but overall not a deal breaker.

Americana. Beautiful look back into time. If your anywere near Naperville you can take the recorded tour. The only drawback is that the characters are not full time. You might want to come during an event week. Still, a blast either way.

We got this attraction to visit off of tripadvisor as it had many recommendations. We were not disappointed as it was easy to get to and find, easy parking easy access. The staff there were excellent and the whole layout of the initial history and development of Naperville was excellent. Walking around the living history part of the settlement was... More

We got a private tour of the mansion - just by asking the docent. Docents everywhere were very helpful and knowledgeable. Our friends in Naperville have an historic home, so it was fun to see these places that have been preserved and learn about the times.

We enjoyed several hours on a beautiful day as we walked around the Settlement. There were docents in many of the buildings who were happy to explain artifacts, tell stories, and explain the significance of the building to Naperville. There were many school groups there, but it did not lessen the enjoyment as the children of various ages were polite... More

If you are a resident of Naperville it's free and you have to show a DL. If not $12 is the fee. Walking around the area is nice that the each area has information. They sale souvenirs in the entrance building, the coffee mugs of all sizes, among other nick naks.

As a resident of downtown Chicago who was born and raised in a south suburb, I've always thought of Naperville as one of the newest and fastest growing suburbs in the Chicago area. In my work as a sportswriter for the Chicago Daily News and Sun-Times, I spent many occasions at North Central College and Naperville North and Naperville Central... More

We went to Civil War Days and when the battle was too much for us, we had a nice time discovering the museum. Nice to have an historical record of the city we call home.

It's just a pleasure to have this multi-acre gem so near downtown Naperville. We have gone there for years for the many activities hosted year round, from the Halloween festivals to the concerts to the Civil War days, wine tasting, food festival, and Christmas lights....it's always well done and a great time.

This folk museum is always improving & upgrading. There are many old buildings and a new children's area. Also, it's free for Naperville residents.
