This is a great day trip for the family. You have the Robert R. McCormick Museum, the First Divison War Museum which is outstanding and the gardens. The only cost is to park!!

We live near the park and have visited it many times with our of town friends. Since there is just a $5 fee for entry it is perfect for coming just to use the beautiful grounds for a picnic or a walk. If you have rowdy boys take them to the tank park. Here they can climb on the tanks... More

It's hard to imagine the wealth that would allow one man to develop the estate that is Cantigny Park. It is beautiful, and the house, gardens, and museum are well worth the price of admission.

You experience the "you are there" phenomenon for every war since WW1. The gardens are also beautiful and the tour of the McCormick Mansion is entertaining and informative. Plan... More

Cantigny is one of our favorite parks with acres of beautiful gardens, the McCormick Mansion, the extraordinary Big Red One First Division US Army Military Museum, and dozens of tanks and vehicles you can climb. All of this only costs $10 a carload! We love the manicured park and gardens and the wide variety of flowers and trees. (See photos.)... More
