Naper Settlement is your local outdoor history museum and community gathering space. Each year, thousands of visitors experience the stories of Naperville’s past and present through historical interpretations, interactive exhibits, educational programs, and one-of-a-kind events. We are proud to be Illinois’ only outdoor history museum accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
As you step into the past, we encourage you to make the connection to the future. What innovations have changed our everyday lives? How has Naperville, once a small farm town, evolved into one of the largest and most prosperous cities in Illinois? How does your unique story help shape our future?
As our history continues to unfold, so do our efforts to tell Naperville’s story. We encourage you to learn more about our upcoming programming and events and start planning your next visit at NaperSettlement.org. We look forward to seeing you!
