Harriet Fuller Rust Pioneer Neighborhood/Discovery Room

Permanent exhibit

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.
