For 50 years, we have collected and preserved the artifacts and objects that embody our community's rich heritage, ensuring that the stories and lessons of the past remain vibrant and accessible for generations to come. As the Oak Park River Forest Museum grows, so does the need to care for, exhibit, maintain, and share the treasures of our Villages with the public.
There are many ways you can help, including:
- Become a Member of the OPRF Museum
- Donate your time as a volunteer at the Museum or at one of our many regularly scheduled community events
- Make a tax-deductible contribution to our Annual Operating Fund or our Capital Development Fund
- Donate an artifact, such as old photos, documents and objects of historical signficance
Whether your gift is financial, an item of historical signficance, or the valuable contribution of your time and personal involvement, the Oak Park River Forest Museum welcomes your support.
The Oak Park River Forest Museum is operated by The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that continues to thrive because of the generosity of our community members.
