Data Center Description
The Illinois State Museum (ISM) is a system of museums and galleries serving the people of Illinois. The Museums foster an appreciation of the living world, introduce the art of Illinois, open windows to education, and protect irreplaceable state treasures. The ISM mission is fulfilled through collecting, research, exhibits, publications, and interpretive programs that enhance educational experiences, aesthetic values, and in general, the quality of life. Currently the natural history exhibits on the first floor of the State Museum in Springfield are under renovation. We have more information on the exciting new exhibit, Changes, slated to open in 2004.
