This museum is a hidden gem! Nicely presented history of the state beginning with geological history (great job on glacial history), plants and animals native to Illinois and an explanation of the original prairies, conservation and the introduction of non-native species, and the people of Illinois and how their lives have changed. Native American exhibits were adequate but hope for more. Kids exhibits absolutely perfect! Great museum for those who like to read and learn more as well as for those who just want a quick overview. Docents excellent! Oh and by the way, it's free!
