Trailblazers, a pre-membership program offered by the McLean County Museum of History, is currently under construction. Though the Museum regrets having to put the program on hold, current and future Trailblazers are encouraged to look forward to details on the new and improved Trailblazer membership program in Fall 2015. Until then, please continue to take advantage of all the Museum has to offer in exhibits and special events. We can't wait to see you again!

Mark your calendars! The Museum's annual Presidents' Day celebration will be taking place from 12:00-4:00 on February 16, 2015. Current Trailblazers who attend the event will receive a special token of appreciation. See you there!

Upcoming Trailblazer Events:

Presidents' Day 2015: February 16th, 12:00-4:00

Presidents' Day is a family friendly event. All activities will be free and open to the public. In anticipation of the Museum's upcoming Cruisin' with Lincoln on 66 Visitors Center, come celebrate our nation's founding fathers by taking a trip down the Mother Road! Did you know the official starting point of Route 66 is Chicago, IL—the former home of current president Barack Obama? Or that the development of the U.S. interstate highway system in 1956 was championed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower—the political opponent of Bloomington native and Democratic presidential nominee Adlai E. Stevenson II? Find out this and more at the 2015 Presidents' Day open house. Activities will include a mock election, crafts, games, and... celebratory cookies baked by our downtown neighbor Sugar Mama Bakery!
