2019-2020 Passport to Adventure Begins May 1
Bartlett Depot Museum, 100 W. Railroad Avenue
Bartlett Village Hall, 228 S. Main Street

The annual "Passport to Adventure" program is the perfect way for those four years old and older to discover and explore history, art and nature close to home. This year, 70 area museums, nature centers and educational sites in DuPage and Kane Counties invite you to experience history, art, the environment and more through exhibits, interactives and other activities.

The program runs from May 1 through April 30, 2020. All you need to start is a free "passport," available at the Bartlett History Museum in Village Hall, 228 S. Main Street; Bartlett Depot Museum, 100 W. Railroad Avenue; Bartlett Nature Center, 2054 W. Stearns Road; and Arts in Bartlett Center for the Arts, 215 S. Main Street. The "passport" lists all 70 participating sites and includes information such as location, hours and admission fees. Remember to have your "passport" stamped at each site you visit.

More than 600 participants from Bartlett alone take part each year in this free program sponsored by the Kane-DuPage Regional Museum Association. The Bartlett resident that visits the most sites between May 1 and August 31, 2019, will be awarded the Mayor's Medallion at a Village Board meeting. Residents have until September 14, 2019 to register their name and site total at Bartlett Village Hall, 228 S. Main Street, for medallion consideration
