Would you recommend Health World, Children's Health Museum?

by K C. from Barrington, IL (January 29, 2009)
Health World is all outreach all the time. They provide wonderful health and safety programs in the school's classrooms. As of June 2006 the museum is no longer operating. They continue to educate children about health and safety with their outreach programs and summer camps.
