Springfield’s History Museum on the Square is in the running for a national prize as the best new attraction to debut in 2019.
The Museum is one of 20 attractions around the country that is being voted on as part of USA Today’s “10 Best” readers choice poll. The voting on the poll runs through December 30th and people can vote once per day in the poll.
USA Today describes the Museum on their poll like this:
“The history of Route 66 comes alive at the new Springfield History Museum on the Square, where six galleries tell the stories of Springfield’s founders, the Mother Road, the Civil War in the area and regional Native American culture.”
The History Museum on the Square is competing against venues like the American Civil War Museum in Richmond, Virginia; the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum; the American Kennel Club’s Museum of the Dog in New York; and Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota.
