ADMISSION IS FREE.
The Green Revolution, an eco-friendly, minimal carbon footprint free exhibit created by the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, and distributed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), will be on display through June at the Aurora History Museum. The Museum has partnered with various City of Aurora departments including Aurora Water, the Morrison Nature Center, Planning & Development Services, Publics Works and Aurora Public Library for thought-provoking and motivating displays on the environment.
