Heimatmuseum

 

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.
