On Monday, Aug. 12, the Elmhurst History Museum is offering "Museum Maker Monday" with free programming designed for elementary-age children.

The theme will be "Music of the '60s." Fifty years ago in August of 1969, young people converged on the small town of Woodstock, New York, for what became one of the most memorable music events of a generation. Kids will listen to music from the 1960s and make their own instruments to play along.


Museum Maker Mondays takes place on select dates throughout the summer from 1 to 4 p.m. at the museum, 120 E. Park Ave. in Elmhurst.

Kids and their parent or caregivers can explore the museum on a traditionally-closed day, play games, complete a craft, and picnic on the grounds weather permitting.

Each Museum Maker Monday program will feature a different theme.

The drop-in programs take place in the Elmhurst History Museum's Education Center. Crafts are available while supplies last. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and no registration is required.
