About Us

Nestled in the Lakewood Forest Preserve, the Lake County Discovery Museum provides a peaceful and relaxed setting for weddings, receptions and rehearsal dinners.

The natural setting provides a spectacular backdrop as your guests enjoy the lovely grounds and native prairie garden, or linger in the courtyard surrounded by native woodlands. The grounds are also a spectacular scenic backdrop for wedding ceremonies and photos.

In addition to the beautiful natural setting, guests are free to roam the Museum galleries to explore exhibits on natural history, popular culture and art. The nationally accredited Museum features award-winning permanent exhibits and changing special exhibitions.
