25th Anniversary Fund - Facility Upgrades

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary, the museum received the maximum grant award of $750,000 from Gov. Pritzker’s Illinois Public Museum Capital Program, which represents half the funds needed to complete the museum’s upcoming HVAC and roofing renovations.
