Monday, January 20
Starts at 9:00 AM
On Monday, January 21, the McLean County Museum of History will observe the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, providing free admission to all visitors from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. As part of the Museum’s vision to be an essential element in the cultural and educational fabric of the region, the Museum offers free admission every Tuesday. The MLK Holiday free admission is an extension of that effort.
The Museum programs and exhibits tell the rich stories of past generations as well as new and growing communities, providing opportunities for public reflection on our heritage of hopes, triumphs and failures. This year offers an opportunity to experience the exhibit, A Community in Conflict, which explores additional stories of progress, including a focus on civil rights and social justice.
Jeff Woodard, Director of Marketing and Community Relations explains, “all students and children twelve and under already enjoy free admission to the Museum anytime. The free admission days remove barriers for adults with families in mind. With the school holiday we want to also encourage parents to come out with their kids and reflect.”
