Museum Audio Tour

Lend us an ear: Hear the Stories with a Free Audio Tour

The audio tour presents the personal stories of local Holocaust Survivors through compelling spoken narrative. The audio tour is available for both our permanent Holocaust exhibition and the Take a Stand Center.

Before your visit, download the tour on Google Play or the App Store. Search “Illinois Holocaust Museum” to download our app on your smartphone.

Audio tours are provided on-site, with handheld devices that visitors may borrow. Bring your own headphones, or purchase a disposable pair from our Legacy Gift Shop. We also have several complimentary pairs of headphones available for use.
