65 2nd grade students from Starke School in Pekin visited the Museum on Thursday as part of the Dirksen Experience.
Each year the students from Starke School visit places in Pekin in what I like to call the Everett Dirksen Experience. They visit his grave site, his past home, and the Museum just to name a few. This year the Museum played host to 65 2nd graders from Starke accompanied by teachers, and volunteers.
This year we had students from Mrs. Oesch's 2nd grade class. Mrs. Lystila's 2nd grade class, and Mrs. Mattson's 2nd grade class.
This year the students also visited State Representative Mike Unes's office, two doors down from the Museum.
Top: Students listen as Museum volunteer and Board Member Barbara Tidaback tells them about the Military Uniforms on display at the Museum.
The Museum is open on Monday and Wednesday from 10 am - 2 pm.
If you are interested in wanting a tour of the Museum ( for an individual) just walk in on those days and hours, and for groups please call Christal Dagit at 309-840-0177. Admission is free.
