Museum Collection


The Naperville Heritage Society's permanent museum collection includes nearly 80,000 two- and three-dimensional items including:

  • Household and industrial objects
  • Furniture, clothing, textiles, paintings, sculptures, architectural fragments, transportation artifacts and agricultural implements
  • Prints, photographs, films, audio / video tapes and multimedia
  • Business, institutional and personal archives, such as original manuscripts and documents, including diaries, letters, ledgers and journals

The majority of the museum's three-dimensional artifacts are displayed in settings at Naper Settlement that depict their original use.
