Our Mission Statement

The Illinois Rock & Roll Museum on Route 66 is a public charity 501c3 nonprofit organization that exists to preserve the history of musicians and bands with ties to Illinois while educating visitors about our rich music history.   Our mission will meet our goals through the operation of a world-class museum that collects, preserves and exhibits artifacts of artists who have reached national and international recognition, and by providing enlightening educational programs.


Our Vision for the Museum

Illinois has a rich musical heritage that has influenced rock and roll artists across the globe. Musicians from Rockford to Chicago, Champaign to downstate Illinois have played an integral part of the music scene for decades creating music that transcends many genres.


Supporting our Communities

The Illinois Rock & Roll Museum on Route 66 is dedicated to supporting local musicians, performers, and others in the music industry and performing arts in the form of scholarships and donations. The Museum also has strong potential to provide the City of Joliet with the opportunity to benefit from strong revenue generation. The Museum will provide positive economic impact resulting from increased tourism dollars spent in the region, funding from corporate sponsorship, donor contributions, advertising opportunities, and new tourism partnerships.
