    I'm not sure if it was worth the 50+ I paid to get into the museum, but it's definitely worth it to stop by at least once. My favorite exhibits were the the non-permanent ones I believe. My first favorite was the quilt exhibit. It was a surprisingly fun and hearttugging. It was hard not to feel like the room was hugging you. My other favorite was Disney exhibit. It was fun seeing original drafts. The view from the museum was gorgeous as well

    Nice cultural events and so much more! Art, music, all positive vibes! The Black Tower was planned very well! The President of the museum was out and about, nice friendly things to do! Preston Jackson was amongst us, a very down to earth brilliant Artist! Spoken word by Brandon Williams. Sometimes the events are free!

    My daughter and I enjoyed our visit on a Saturday; she's 8.5 yo and it was our first visit (we live in Normal), we loved the exhibits, she enjoyed the reading area and the drawing lesson. We watched the Rocky Express in the giant theater, there was an art gallery in the basement (or first level), we ended up paying ~31 for the museum and the Rocky Express + 7 for the large popcorn, I thought it was affordable, though the Museum is relatively small and perhaps if we had more time to visit the planetarium it would justify the cost for us, We arrived ~2:40 PM. Still very affordable though and we got $1 discount on entrance for being member of our town's Children's Museum. Fun fact: they sell COVID stuffies...see the pics.

    Love this museum! We watched an astronomy show and the show guide is very knowledgeable and explained the show so well. We were impressed. The moon exhibition was very nice too. I enjoyed this experience.

    took my dinosaur crazy 6 yr old son to the walking with t-rex exhibit. it was great. loved it. the planetarium was cool. theater was nice. but the museum doesn't have much to offer. i bought the membership for the fact it gets me into other museums as well. downside they have to be 90 miles or more from the home museum.
