Don’t Close the Illinois State Museum!

We got news this week of a museum which could close down and we want to share the petition to save this historic institution:

The new governor of Illinois is threatening to close the Illinois State Museum. The Museum is 138 years old and is one of the great repositories for Midwestern archaeological and ethnographic collections.  The Museum was instrumental in working with the University of Maryland and the University of Illinois in the research program at New Philadelphia.  If you are inclined, consider signing this MoveOn petition to the Governor to save the museum and its related facilities from being closed.

Thanks for considering this the MoveOn petition:
