History Detectives

Previous History Detective Club Meetings .History Detectives outside the Museum

"History Detectives" is designed to introduce the youngest members of our community in grades K-6 to local history through a variety of fun Wilmette-based activities to complete at the museum, at home, or around town. Club members will earn certificates or prizes for activities completed.  

Next Meeting  

For our next meeting on June 24th, we’ll meet up at The Grove in Glenview for its Pioneer Days event.   Costumed docents will help us imagine what it was like to live, work, and play in the 19th century when pioneer families like the Kennicotts first settled in the area.  We’ll participate in hands-on activities such as candle dipping, blacksmithing, and basket weaving.
