Event details

For the past 150 years, tourists have been sending “wish you were here” sentiments from their journeys. Drop in to learn a brief history of postcards and then create your own! After you decorate a postcard, view the on-loan Smithsonian exhibition “Journey Stories” to see vintage postcards and learn how and why past Illinoisans traveled. This is a drop-in program; stop by anytime between noon and 3 p.m.
