While on our trip to Springfield, IL (from Green Bay, WI) for a concert, we searched desperately for things we could do together as a family that would be affordable. When we came across the website for this museum, I was really excited. Then I saw that admission was free and I got really excited.
Not being from the area, we had a little trouble with finding parking. In the end, we parked a couple blocks away and walked. Which was just fine because the weather was perfect. We spent hours in the museum. The kids had so much fun. And so did we! (My brother in law and mother in law also accompanied us on this trip)
The exhibits were fascinating and the kids play area was amazing. They ran off all their energy! It was the perfect way to spend the day before heading to our concert later that night. If we're ever in the area again, we plan on stopping back for sure!
