On the fourth Saturday of every month (except September) at 10:30 am, a historic interpreter will guide visitors through an in-depth look at Rockford’s history with exhibits on immigration, industrialization and pop culture. Learn stories and anecdotes not available on the regular self-guided experience and maybe impress your friends on a return visit with your insider knowledge.
Pay at the museum Gift Store when you arrive at the museum. No advanced admission purchases are necessary.
