Play is a wonderful way to learn. The Illinois State Museum invites families to playfully learn with marble painting, historic games and toys, shadow puppets, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and more. Celebration of Play will honor the life of Mary Ann MacLean and the Museum’s children’s Play Museum exhibit that bears her name.​
Celebration of Play is sponsored by Bank of Springfield.
Also on September 24, the Museum is participating in Smithsonian Magazine's Museum Day Live event.
