Open Wed-Sun, 10 AM - 5 PM | The last Friday of every month is FREE!

Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center hosts approximately 40 programs annually. These sessions cover a wide range of topic areas, including the Holocaust, genocide, and contemporary social justice issues. Our diverse offerings include panel discussions, lectures, live performances, films, and more. Lessons learned from these events create the bridge between local and global, challenging us to consider injustices both far off and close to home. Most programs and events are free with Museum admission or membership.

Many of our past programs can be viewed on our YouTube channel.

Links to virtual programs will be sent out 24-48 hours in advance of the program.
