Very helpful people! A great collection of information on the life of US Grant. They gave us great input as to where to visit and great directions to local wineries. They have brochures on where to stay, where to eat and what to see. Don't hessitate to ask the folks in the center for advice.
We did not know about this site, until we took the trolley ride and rode past it, as it is not on the main street of town. But we are so happy we visited it....so much history and wonderful artifacts dealing with President Grant...and things that he and Mrs. Grand actually owned.
The Old Market House is also Galena's Welcome Center and it is very welcoming. There is a huge collection of Grant items as well as items related to the city. There is a very nice display of items related to the annual Boy Scout Pilgramage in the entrance.
I liked going here ..it was clean , and inviting and there are displays to see inside the building ...the location is good, parking was fine and it was a nice starting point to our visit of Galena.
If you're into Civil War and/or President Grant history, this is a great place to visit. They have a interesting collection of memorabilia,artifacts and paintings and it us free. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They also have tourist information.
My family and I have visited The Old Market House several times on our various trips to Galena, and I have found every single time that we go, no one behind the desk will speak to you. There is no greeting when you walk in the door, no questions as to whether you need assistance or advice. Nothing! The ladies... 更多
Good break from shopping to take another historical tour. You can view the artifacts at your leisure and the staff are there to help answer questions about your trip.
