The Chester Gould - Dick Tracy Museum, a non-for-profit organization, was established to display, promote and honor the work and life of Chester Gould, creator of the "Dick Tracy" comic strip, who resided for fifty years in Woodstock, Illinois.
The Museum is housed in Woodstock's historic Old Courthouse on the Square, and is a source of pride and goodwill for the community. Displays in the museum feature historic documents of all types, including original artwork, correspondence, photographs and hundreds of memorabilia, including Chester Gould's drawing board and chair.
In 2000, The Chester Gould-Dick Tracy Museum expanded by officially opening the "Crimestopper Club Room," filled with child-friendly hands-on exhibits including forensics, identification measures and drawing techniques. In 2000, this innovative room received a "Superior Achievement Award" from the Illinois Association of Museums and in 2001, received the "Award of Excellence" from the Illinois State Historical Society.
