This meme has been around for awhile, but I thought I’d share it here. The last time I saw it, I think it graced the walls of our grad lab…

It’s Friday and Spring Break here at the museum – so things are pretty busy. What are you or your organizations doing to mark this busy time of year? Extra programs? Special presentations? I’m eager to hear your thoughts!

Regardless, when in doubt, Indiana Jones.

Snow!

It’s Illinois – so of course the weather is unpredictable.

Local school districts were closed due to the record 18.5″ of snow over the weekend, and many area residents were snowed in. The Museum was a busy place however with tourists and traveling spring breakers enjoying the free exhibits – including the ever popular Play Museum.

As it starts to melt outside already, take a look at the Research and Collections Center’s sign!

Mountains of snow obscure the entrance to the Illinois State Museum Research and Collection Center.
