Until January 18, 2009, about 100 of his children's book illustrations from nearly 50 different books are on display in this FREE musuem. It's worth the trip.
Wisconsin is not all that far from the Illinois border. And the rest of the musuem is worth a look-see as well. There's a wooly mammoth skeleton, ivory carvings from China, life-sized dwellings of Native Americans, a fabulous hands-on work area for kids...we wished this would have been around when our own kids were younger! Next door is a Civil War Museum that warrants a future visit.
