We’re celebrating our 60th Anniversary in 2013, and invite you to come explore the fascinating cultural and environmental heritage of the lower Illinois River valley with us! There will be a variety of fun and informative activities for people of all ages. Focusing on archeology and the natural resources of our region, our exhibitors and featured activities will introduce you to life in Illinois from 12,000 years ago to today. Activities and exhibitors include:
Additional Activities & Exhibitors: Learn about McCully Heritage Project, the Nature Institute, the Three Rivers Chapter of the Missouri Archaeological Society, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Veterans Curation Project, and much more!
Admission is free; donations are welcome. All ages are welcome – Archeology Day is a family-friendly event.
Kampsville is located on Route 100 in Calhoun County, Illinois; it takes approximately 90 minutes to reach us from either St. Louis, MO or Springfield, IL. Please contact our office with any questions.
This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly
Museum Closed Again!
The Illinios River is rising again. The most recent predicted crest is 36.5 feet. That is the same level as the crest in April, which means water will once again enter our museum. The museum will be closed until further notice. We hope to announce a reopening date in the near future.
