This web page lists museums in the State of Illinois.  Before visiting any of these Illinois museums, be sure to verify their address, hours of operation, and appointment policies (if applicable).  A museum may have ceased operations or moved to a different location, and business hours can sometimes be irregular, especially on and around holidays.  So a quick phone call can often save you time and aggravation.
