Mayor Stephens was first smitten by the charming works of folk art during a trip he took to Europe in the 1960s. His fondness for the figurines became a lifelong pursuit, resulting in the acquisition of the most unusual and rare versions ever produced. In the 1980s, he donated his entire collection, including many rare pieces, to the Village of Rosemont for public museum display. ANRI woodcarvings and Lladro figurines also can be viewed at the museum. Visitor admission is free. The Museum Gift Shop is located just steps from the museum.
