About the Exhibit

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 harvest vegetables from a garden, gather eggs from a chicken coop, cook over an open fire, scrub your clothes, milk a cow, saw a tree in half, and more! Come in and compare your life to the lives of early McLean County settlers.
