Exercise your imagination in our pioneer discovery room
Visitors to the Museum are encouraged to experience the recreated log cabin in the Harriet Rust Pioneer Discovery Room. In this hands-on area, you can push a steel plow, beat an area rug, scrub your clothes (after fetching the water), milk a cow, and more! Come in and compare your life to the lives of early McLean County settlers.
