The museum tells the story of the settlement of Poles and Latinos in this southside community.

Features include displays on the history of the Basilica of St. Josaphat, Kosciuszko Park, and the stream of populations that occupied the blocks in the Lincoln Village and Historic Mitchell neighborhoods. One room showcases exhibits on celebrities that once lived on these blocks, including a movie star, two baseball hall-of-famers, a Medal of Honor recipient, and more. A special feature is the miniature Polish flat that depicts life on the South Side during the Great Depression.
