Looking for the scenic byway in Alton and somehow ends up at this Center in Hartford. The outside does not look much but decide to go in and ask for direction.
Surprise: this is the Illinois starting point of the expedition. The exhibits are easy to follow and kind of fun. The displays are life size models in a story time sequences. Lots of interactive questions & answers for the kids (great for adults too). The exhibit room is sunny and bright which makes you feel you are going to the journey.
There is lovely staff from the tourism who will give you directions, maps and friendly advice which direct us to the scenic route.
The gift shop has an extensive books on the expedition.
Schedule this in your travel journey.
