ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Discovery Center Museum hosted it’s annual “Grandparents Day,” and admission was free.

Kids and adults took part in hands-on experiments, and there were also special art activities like face painting.

Museum leaders say the day is meant to highlight the role a grandparent plays in a child’s life.

“We really see grandparents coming in and engaging with their grand kids,” said Guest Services Manager, Hillary Parks. “You know, getting down, sometimes even on the floor and really playing with them and being a part of their make believe when they’re really little, to just helping them to create things, or creating things themselves in the art studio, and really playing with our exhibits, which is a lot of fun to see.”
