Families looking for affordable and engaging activities this summer can make their way to the Elmhurst History Museum on select Mondays for free programming designed for elementary-age children. Museum Maker Mondays will take place on June 19, July 17, and August 7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Elmhurst History Museum, located at 120 E. Park Ave. in Elmhurst. The program is free and no reservations are required.

Kids and their parent or caregivers can drop in to explore the museum on a traditionally-closed day, play games, complete a craft, and picnic on the grounds weather permitting. This year’s theme is travel and adventure in connection with the Elmhurst History Museum’s new exhibit, “The Bicycle: Two Wheels to Adventure.” The exhibit profiles the history of bicycling in the area and spotlights Elmhurst’s own global adventurer, J. Hart Rosdail, who traveled the world on his bicycle.

Museum Maker Monday craft materials are available while supplies last. Activities change for each date so be sure to participate in all three programs. Children must be accompanied by an adult/caregiver.

Put some free fun in your summer with Museum Maker Mondays at the Elmhurst History Museum! For more information, visit the Elmhurst History Museum’s web site at www.elmhursthistory.org or call 630-833-1457.
