|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on August 18, 2022 at 10:00 am

The exhibit includes live video footage of our functioning honey bee hive, installed in a protected, non-public corner of the Museum property.
At 10 AM on Thursday, August 4, come meet Wil Pilipauskas, owner of Willie’s Honey Co. in McHenry, who helped us install the hive.

Wil will demonstrate some of the tools and safety measures used for beekeeping, such as:

  • protective head and bodygear
  • smokers to calm bees
  • frames to collect honeycomb
Guests can also get a first look at the indoor portion of the exhibit, in which children role play as bees, collecting pretend pollen from flowers and delivering it to a honeycomb.

Can’t make this preview?  Mark your calendars for an additional preview and demo at 10AM on Thursday, August 18, or join us for the exhibit’s grand opening on World Honey Bee DaySaturday, August 20!
