Yes, but people actually want to go to the Museum Center.

Why isn't there a German heritage museum somewhere else? I agree that that would be a great attraction.
...there is a small one in an old farmhouse out in the western suburbs someplace. I recall going to it but couldnt tell you where it was at.

Oh, Saturdays are crazy. I am not sure they have too many slow days. Before my son was in school I used to take him there several times a week to play in the Children's Museum downstairs. Even when school is in there will be field trips, parents with younger kids, families, etc. But they do a helluva business there.

It was very small. But I think this history is also addressed in that historic musuem in Union Terminal. So IMO that box is checked.

The Freedom Center is pretty impressive, and is a regional draw. I know for a fact that schools even as far away as Louisville send kids up there on field trips.
