The “Play Museum” at the Illinois State Museum: FREE and Fabulous

This hands-on children’s area (found on the basement level of the Illinois State Museum) provides children an opportunity to learn through play what it’s like to work at a museum.  Children can choose from a variety of activities – all designed for kids ages 3 – 10.  Kids can load a jeep for a scientific expedition, frame and display child friendly art, piece together a baby Mastodont puzzle, explore amazing collections in the artifact and art drawers, crawl through a cave and so much more!  This is interactive fun and learning at its best.
