Visit to the Kankakee Railroad Museum

I had a great time visiting the Kankakee Railroad Museum, housed in the historic Illinois Central Depot!  If you want to visit, be sure to call ahead first, as the museum is staffed by volunteers and hours can vary.

The museum features original train tickets from rail lines that ran through 
Kankakee, a restored trolley car, model railroads, vintage posters, and much more!  

Check it out!
