Visit Us

We are located in scenic Byron, Illinois at the intersection of Illinois Routes 2 and 72. The museum complex consists of the historic Read House, which is a brick house at the corner of Route 2 and 72 (Union Street), and the adjacent building, which is where our entrance is locatedĀ (pictured at right). From Route 2, turn North on Union Street to find our entrance.

Free parking is available on Union Street in front of the Museum, in City Lot #1 on Walnut Street, and City Lot #2 on Union Street. If parking in the Municipal Lot, the easiest way to get here is through the alley between 5th Alarm Firehouse and the American Legion Hall.

The museum does not charge admission, though we gladly accept donations.
