Joliet has seen its share of amazing American history, include the Illinois & Michigan Canal, Route 66, wartime factories, and Chicago sprawl. For a smaller city, the history museum is surprising well deigned and enjoyable. Located downtown, it also provides an excuse to see the many historic buildings lining silent streets.
The museum is about 39.5 miles/0 hours, 52 minutes by car from downtown Chicago. The Metra Joliet Union Station is about 0.4 miles away.
