Galleries

"Brushstrokes of the Past: Naperville's Story"
The "Brushstrokes of the Past" exhibit is a 3,500-square-foot permanent exhibition gallery. A combination of artwork, artifacts, historic photographs and interactives are creatively interwoven to share Naperville's development from a frontier settlement to an established 20th century city. This exhibition is open year-round to visitors in the Pre-Emption House Visitor Center.

Heritage Gallery
In the "Heritage Gallery," temporary exhibitions on a variety of themes and topics are produced that highlight different pieces from the museum's artifact and archival collections, local artists, collectors and traveling exhibitions. This gallery is open year-round in the Pre-Emption House Visitor Center.

History Connection
Geared toward children ages 3-10 but fun for kids of all ages, the "History Connection" is a great place to explore the past and play with history through a number of engaging, hands-on activities. Try on clothes from the past, build a house with Lincoln Logs or magnetic blocks or complete a craft related to the past. This exhibit is located in the Pre-Emption House Visitor Center at Naper Settlement and is open all year long.
