The Danube-Swabian cultural museum opened in 1990 in Lake Villa, Illinois. Up until 1987 it was the "German-Hungarian Old Peoples Home". After closing the home in 1987, a major renovation turned this building into a museum. Since its opening, people have donated original old world items for display. These items range from kitchen utensils to costumes to toys to hand-stitched articles. An enormous amount of orginal items are displayed.
The museum is open at every picnic and by appointment.
