The Raupp Museum is dedicated to preserving Buffalo Grove’s heritage and sharing the community’s history with everyone. This site features some of our collections (objects, archives, photographs) and online exhibits to showcase the rich history of Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

The Raupp Museum offers two permanent gallery spaces dedicated to exploring the history of Buffalo Grove, along with several changing exhibit spaces. Visitors have the opportunity to sit on the porch of an 1890s farm house, milk the museum’s replica dairy cow, try a typewriter, and peak into an old fashioned general store. Today, the museum serves as the cultural preserver of Buffalo Grove’s past, storing artifacts and providing quality educational programs for area residents.

Hours: Monday - Thursday: 11am-4:30pm, Sunday: 1-4pm, Friday, Saturday: CLOSED

Address: 901 Dunham Lane, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089
