There is a new curator here and it shows. Updated and different, strolling around here on a cold afternoon was a perfect choice!

they rotate in different artists and exhibits, almost all of the installations are more then worth the visit. If you live nearby, rotate the Art Museum (and others) in Elmhurst, into your routine. It's worth the 1-2 hours you will spend.

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
