Mission Statement: Inspiring Wonder and Excitement for Learning
What is there to do: In the over 6,000 square foot museum, children can spend hours exploring everything the facility has to offer. In the Ferris Village, kids can role-play as the village banker and they can go to the art studio and learn about the fine arts. They can also visit the larger than life Lite Bright as well as other areas of the museum where the children will design and engineer. They are constantly updating and adding new exhibits for young minds to enjoy.
OSI Insight: This museum is a treasure in Galesburg. Our own children have been here multiple times on school trips and they always say how much they enjoy their time at the museum. The museum is a great way to get kids to really think outside of the box.
