History Detectives

.History Detectives outside the Museum

"History Detectives" is designed to introduce the youngest members of our community 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 winter meeting, we'll explore the museum's new exhibit Sox vs. Cubs: Chicago’s Civil Wars.  On our hunt for primary sources, we’ll learn about the history of this rivalry and famous players of the past, and what is means to be a fan of the game. Wear your favorite team's jersey and bring something to share in a show and tell: a treasured baseball souvenir/collection, a photograph, or simply a memory from this fall's World Series. We'll conclude with a debate on our favorite players and a baseball themed game.
