Tucked away in a Chicago suburb is one of Mies van der Rohe’s three family houses built in the United States (another is the more famous Farnsworth House, also in northern Illinois). No longer in its original location and attached to the Elmhurst Art Museum,...More

The museum changes every couple of months so it is worth return trips, although some of the exhibits are misses. Don't pass up the local artist gallery though! Exciting and challenging work can be seen there year-round.

We were in Elmhurst visiting a friend and stopped by to check out this cool little attraction. It’s not worth a visit if you’re not in the area, but it is a neat little stop if you’re in town and it’s something to check out...More

The Elmhurst Art Museum is relatively small but always has really interesting exhibits. There is an original Mies van der Rohe home attached to the museum which is a fantastic look back into Mid Centruy Modern Architecture. Always worth a visit.

There is an interesting architectural story about the building. The current pinball machine exhibit is fun and it brings out the young people which is great. My impression is that there is alot of young art, which is refreshing. Don't miss the cube.

TIL – That for years I've looked at this building figuring it didn't really fit in Wilder Park. I'm not a fan of modern industrial design. That was until I finally visited the museum for the first time last weekend. Another great example as to...More

Museum features local artists plus changing special exhibits. Type of art is mix with paintings, mixed media and various other art forms. Although not a large museum, an interesting way to spent 1 or 2 hours.

Love this place. I really enjoy walking through the park to this beautiful little museum. The support that this place receives from the community is one of the reasons we choose to live in Elmhurst.

Small exhibit space in the historic Mies van de Rohe home, set in a nice park. Pleasant and helpful staff. When I was there, the exhibit was inflatable art. A few of the pieces were nice; some silly. Really enjoyed the sky view exhibit on...More
