Nine more days until school begins again . . . I can hardly believe the summer vacation has turned to memories. We have made many memories this summer and today we will add another. Today we will all load up in our SUV and head south to a great little museum of sorts . . . Dixon Mounds Museum.
The Dickson Mounds Museum, a branch of the Illinois State Museum and a National Historic Site, is one of the major on-site archaeological museums in the United States. It offers a unique opportunity to explore the world of the American Indian in an awe inspiring journey through 12,000 years of human experience in the Illinois River Valley.
Visitors to the museum, in west-central Illinois, encounter innovative interpretive exhibits; exciting hands-on activities; archaeological sites; and a variety of special events in a rural setting.
I remember visiting Dixon Mounds many times for school field trips. I have wonderful memories and remember the excitement of seeing things of the past.
This evening I will post pictures of our adventure.
Have a great day!
