The museum is located in the beautifully renovated old courthouse in the middle of downtown Bloomington. The exhibit area is well researched and there are many interesting every day objects to look at and think about. The museum works to have interesting changing exhibits, which are smaller, but always have several related events. The museum also has many events throughout the year. It is free on Saturday mornings during the Farmer's Market. So that's a great time to take children to the hands-on farm on the prairie area. If you live around here, you really should visit just to get to know more about the county.

We took our five year old last weekend and it even held his attention. Very interesting look at life in Mclean county in the past 200 or so years. Several different rooms to view and a hands on room for the kiddies which my son liked. I thouroughly enjoyed the room about the Great Depression which had actual experiences of Mclean county residents who lived through it. The cost to get in was very reasonable. A nice way to kill a couple hours and to learn something while you are doing it!
