"History Detectives" is designed to introduce the youngest members of our community in grades 4-8 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. Click here for information on past meetings.

Next Meeting  

At our winter meeting, "Mapping the Past" we’ll focus on the many ways in which maps are useful documents for historians.  Using a variety of local and historic maps, we’ll consider how maps have evolved over time.  We’ll explore the museum’s new Interactive Map Exhibit and conclude with fun jigsaw puzzles and board games that will be sure to challenge our geography skills!

Meetings are open only to club members. It's easy to join!  See below.
