Dollar Kids Day at ALPLM

April 20th, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Saturday, April 20, is another “Dollar Kids Day” at the ALPLM to celebrate our latest exhibit that’s created just for kids!

The Questioneers: Read. Question. Think. PLAY! will introduce visitors to Ada Twist, scientist; Rosie Revere, engineer; Iggy Peck, architect; Sofia Valdez, future prez, and Aaron Slater, illustrator. Each character’s story highlights problem-solving, determination, risk-taking, bravery and the role of caring adults.

To make the day extra special, Andrea Aggertt, the Architect of the Illinois State Capitol, will be joined by members of the American Institute of Architects Illinois, from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in the museum plaza to inspire future architects with a hands-on, interactive building project to create a miniature Washington Monument out of spaghetti and marshmallows! Your children can also take home a free copy of a Illinois Great Places Coloring Book, while supplies last.  Plus, students from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Grainger College of Engineering will be on hand, too, from 9:30 a.m. to Noon with a variety of demonstrations of construction and design concepts that are sure to inspire your future engineer!

To make the exhibit accessible to as many people as possible, the ALPLM will admit children on April 20 for just $1. Children 5-12 will be admitted for a dollar each, rather than the usual price of $6.
