About Isle a la Cache

Isle a la Cache Museum immerses visitors in our cultural heritage and natural history. The museum transports visitors back to the 18th century, when “Illinois Country” was home to the fur trade. See how the two worlds of French voyageurs and Potawatomi intertwined. Feel the softness of a beaver pelt, see canoes built of birch bark and walk inside a wigwam. Then venture outside to be dazzled by the wildlife in the forest preserve, including bald eagles, migratory songbirds, mink and turtles. Also, be sure to check out the Blanding’s turtle inside the museum.
