KidsWork Children’s Museum
Started by a group of dedicated volunteers in 2007, KidsWork Children's Museum has continued to evolve and grow in the six years it's been in Frankfort with over 400,000 visitors over the past three.
Says Director of Development Jan Czarnik, "Our goal for this year is to expand the museum to offer interactive science, engineering and music exhibits geared to five-to-eight year olds and to add programming in music, science and art. We are seeking funding to do that. Our intention is twofold: to broaden the educational (and fun) experience for children and to become a tourist destination which will contribute to the region's economic development."
The museum is also extremely pleased to announce its Special Needs Families Nights, held on the last Wednesday of each month from 6-8 p.m. Regular admission charges apply for now, although they are hoping to find a sponsor for this community outreach.
Other new exhibits that are in the works or on the way include:
11 White Street (rear of Trolley Barn)
Find them on the web:
- The upstairs rowboat area that was recently refreshed with a beautiful mural by local artist Margie Hafer... a reading nook is on the way.
- Thanks to the Hudek Family, the museum will have a walking piano this summer that will have light up keys to step on (remember the movie "Big" with Tom Hanks?)
- A BMO-Harris-funded kid-friendly ATM machine that will be installed in our grocery store area.
- A "Music in Motion" exhibit and a free weekly music program for one year funded by a Macy's grant.

SIT A BIT CHAIR ART COMES TO DOWNTOWN FRANKFORT
Fun meets functional this summer in our interactive chair art display. We hope you'll come on down and sit a bit in between shopping, dining and enjoying beautiful downtown Frankfort. Our participating merchants' hand-decorated chairs will welcome guests from May 25 to September 26, when they'll be auctioned off as part of the 2nd Annual Wine Walk. We hope you'll take pictures of your favorites (you can actually sit on them!), share them with friends and participate in the auction. Watch our Facebook page for updates.
