Lower Level Exhibits

The lower level of Burpee Museum features an awesome exhibit about Fossil Lake and the research labs! Catch a scientist at work, and they will open the window to answer your questions or chat about their project.  Here, you will find access to the family restroom and the terrace that overlooks the beautiful Rock River in Rockford.  Our large Riverview Hall is the hot spot for lectures, Burpee special events, weddings, family parties, and so much more!
