We've been loving our suburbs recently, but when was the last time you visited the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art in Elmhurst? The museum, located at 220 Cottage Hill, is dedicated to sharing "the eternal beauty of gemstones and promoting the study of earth science." Check out the dioramas and the gold Castle Lizzadro. See their website for more information.
