Looking for a way to entertain and educate the kids while they’re off on spring break? Look no further than the Bronzeville Children’s Museum in Chicago, which offers unique exhibits and programming for kids of all ages, with a special focus on African American history and culture.
Those of us who call Chicago home are well versed in the history of the city. From the Great Chicago Fire and The World’s Fair, to Al Capone’s influence and the growth of industry, we have a wealth of knowledge about our great city! However, we often can’t say the same about the surrounding suburbs! Many cities have their own regional history museums, and today we’re featuring the Elk Grove Historical Museum!
There’s a new trend making everything from kids’ birthday parties and date nights, to corporate team events more exciting and suspenseful…an escape room! An escape room is a physical adventure game where you and other participants are locked in a room and use clues and props within the space to solve a puzzle within a set time limit. In order to be successful you need strong time management, teamwork, and persistence! Even if you don’t make it in time, you’ll still have a blast, and you’ll have stories to share during dinner afterwards! Check out any of the escape rooms below, located all over the state of Iowa, for an energizing activity that’s out of the ordinary and unique! Good luck!
