State Rep. Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, would like his constituents in the 107th district to know about the “Museums in the Park” program available for the 2021-22 season.

Any constituent, and up to three guests, may use Wilhour’s Constituent Education Resource Card to receive complimentary General Admission to 26 museums, zoos, garden and aquarium in the Chicago area.

“As families emerge from the lockdowns and restrictions from the past 15 months, I’d like to encourage everyone to consider visiting not only the museums and attractions in our area, like the Historic Vandalia State House, but the many world-class museums in the Chicago area with my personal pass,” said Wilhour. “Those institutions are opportunities for you, your children and grandchildren to enjoy and explore the arts, sciences, nature and culture.”
