About Elgin City Attractions
Elgin Depot Museum
The museum is in the historic Union Depot, built in 1903. It has a large archive collection and is where the community's historical photos are preserved. Volunteers and staff at the museum help with research, including questions about genealogy. In 2002, the building was renovated. The Elgin Historical Association runs the museum, which is open every Friday and Saturday from noon to 4pm.
Come to the Navy Pier to see a different side of Chicago at night. Enjoy sitting on benches by the water, feeling the breeze from the water, and looking at the dark skyline of downtown Chicago. It is one of Chicago's most famous sights. The mood will be different during the day and at night.
