Hey, Barrington Area Library cardholders, if you've got a little scientist at home, be sure to take them to the Discovery Center Museum in Rockford, Illinois... but take advantage of our Explore More Illinois program first!

Boasting more than 300 interactive exhibits, the Museum is sure to appeal to kids and families fascinated by science -- whether it's space travel, agriculture, the human body, or even sports science, the Museum has it! Kids can send messages in Morse code, visit a planetarium, manipulate a miniature hot air balloon, witness the formation of a small tornado... and more!

Barrington Area Library cardholders can receive up to two additional, free admission passes with purchase of two admission passes.


For more information, visit this page, accessible through the Barrington Area Library homepage. Please be sure to check offer availability prior to reservation. You can also contact us at exploremore@balibrary.org.
