Makers Open House

  • $15 per person, $10 for active Arlington Heights Historical Society Members

The Museum invites makers of all shapes and sizes—artists, painters, sculptors, whatever!—to come out and be inspired by our space. Our beautiful gardens and grounds, historic building architecture and interiors, and artifact collections are all at your disposal to motivate you in your creative outlet, with one of our staff members on hand to add a little historical context to your experience. This is a casual creative environment, where we encourage anyone, from those just trying out a new hobby to lifelong artists, to produce fun works of creativity. This program is BYOS (bring your own supplies), though we do have some basics on hand for general use.


White Glove Tour

  • $10 per person, $5 for active Arlington Heights Historical Society Members

This tour will give you a behind the scenes look at some of the 50,000 artifacts that the Arlington Heights Historical Museum has in their collections. Artifacts are the core of any museum and this tour will immerse you into the Museum's archives. Join the Museum's own Curator, as we don our white gloves and get up close and personal with the collection both in the 1880's Muller House as well as the collection storage areas, usually closed to the public.
