The Questioneers at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum

Looks like this event has already taken place.

Fri, Feb 16 – Sun, May 05, 2024 • 9:00am - 5:00pm

212 North 6th Street, Springfield, IL 62701

Read. Question. Think. Play. The Questioneers exhibit comes to the Illinois Gallery at the ALPLM.

Meet the Questioneers, five fearless second-graders who ask questions, solve problems, and explore the world around them! There’s Ada Twist, scientist; Rosie Revere, engineer; Iggy Peck, architect; Sofia Valdez, future prez, and Aaron Slater, illustrator. They’re the stars of the best-selling series of books by author Andrea Beaty and artist David Roberts.

This special exhibit at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will let young visitors play games and solve problems just like their counterparts in the books. They’ll be able to build flying contraptions, transform Mount Trashmore into a park, fly a “cheese-copter” and investigate why clocks go tick-tock. Or they can simply sit, read and think big thoughts. Visitors will also be able to see the Questioneers books come to life in videos and learn how to draw the characters.

This exhibit, developed by the DuPage Children’s Museum, promotes personal empowerment, curiosity, and perseverance.
