“Super-cool treasure!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We love going here. The tank display is amazing. Kids and adults have so much fun! Kids get to climb on the tanks and learn about history, too! The gardens are a nice treat as well. Can't go wrong for the admission!

This is definitely the place to go to take some wonderful photos. The grounds are gorgeous. The museums are outstanding. Very nice gift shop. They sell military figurines that are high quality and make great gifts.

“Great place for a family day”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Cantigny offers beautiful gardens that captivate everyone, kids gardens, Japanese gardens, formal english gardens to name a few. Grandpa, Dad and boys really enjoyed the war museum and tanks. We are able to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy under numerous shade trees and just sit back and appreciate this little gem in the suburbs.
