  8:30AM 5:00PM Screen-Free Week   The Illinois State Museum will join thousands of schools, libraries, and community groups nationwide in a coordinated effort to encourage millions of Americans to turn off televisions, computers, and video games for seven days and turn on the world around them. Screen-Free Week is a chance for children to read, play, think, create, be more physically active, and to spend more time with friends and family. From Monday, April 29 through Sunday, May 5, the Museum will turn off all multimedia screens in its exhibitions. For the last few years, the Museum has recognized the importance of Screen Free Week as a respite from the screen media that dominate the lives of so many people. “In the past, we have encouraged families to visit the Museum during this week, but this year we decided to lead by example and turn off our screens as well,” said Elizabeth Bazan, Mary Ann MacLean Educator. Museum staff hope that by turning off the screens, visitors will be encouraged to look more closely at the rich array of objects and other educational materials on display. Screen Free Week On average, preschool children spend over four and a half hours a day consuming screen media, while older children spend over seven hours a day including multitasking. Excessive screen time is linked to a number of problems for children, including childhood obesity, poor school performance, and problems with attention span. Screen-Free Week (formerly TV-Turnoff) is coordinated by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, a national advocacy organization devoted to reducing the impact of commercialism on children. Since the Week’s founding in 1994, it has been celebrated by millions of children and their families worldwide. For more information, visit www.screenfree.org. The Illinois State Museum is an institution dedicated to inspiring people of all ages to discover and care about Illinois’ natural and cultural resources and artistic heritage. The Museum’s extensive collections and research activities provide the foundation for exhibitions and public programs that tell the story of the land, life, people, and art of Illinois. The Illinois State Museum is located at 502 S. Spring Street (the corner of Spring and Edwards Streets) in Springfield, and is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. Parking is available nearby, and the building is ADA accessible.
