The First Division Museum at Cantigny Park reopened to the public on Saturday, August 26, 2017 following an extensive 10-month renovation project. They opened with a traditional military ceremony honoring the 100-year history of the 1st Infantry Division and museum ribbon cutting at 11 am that day. Kidlist Contributor, Meghan was there to check it out firsthand with her kids.

Highlights of the thoroughly updated military museum include “Duty First,” an all-new gallery focusing on the more recent history of the Army’s 1st Infantry Division. The gallery’s new media and interactive exhibits provide a hands-on experience from a soldier’s perspective that are sure to leave a lasting impression on visitors.

Admission to the museum is free with paid parking. Cantigny’s regular daily parking fee is $5 per car. On Saturdays and Sundays, May through September, parking is $10. The $10 rate also applies on Labor Day. Parking is free on the first Wednesday of every month.

More information, including a calendar of upcoming events, is available online at fdmuseum.org.

There are also many tanks outside that are pretty cool to see.
