Free
& FUN
The greater Champaign County area is bursting with no-cost
activities. Check out these top spots to visit for free!
TECH TOURS & ACTIVITIES
The University of Illinois is a leader in research and technology, and the
community benefits. The National Center for Supercomputing Applications
(NCSA) currently offers virtual tours of the Blue Waters Supercomputer, one of
the world's fastest supercomputers. Get hands on with the latest in technology at
the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning's TechHub. Play with Virtual
and Augmented reality, create with a 3D printer, and play with drones.
CAMPUS TOUR
The sprawling University of Illinois campus offers everything from historic
architecture to public art to state-of-the-art facilities. Begin your tour at the
Richmond Family Welcome Gallery at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center with an
interactive trailhead map to get you started.
MUSEUMS
Whether you want to admire fine art at Krannert Art Museum, learn about world
heritage at Spurlock Museum, browse the largest collection of John Philip Sousa
compositions at the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music, or discover
the history of life on the prairie at Museum of the Grand Prairie, we have a
museum ready to engage with you. While these museums have free admission,
consider their suggested donations to help support programming.
NATURE CENTERS
Learn about the wildlife that is native to Illinois and live in our natural areas. At
Urbana's Crystal Lake Park, you can observe wildlife in the observation room
and become a naturalist by participating in their field station activities. At Homer
Lake Forest Preserve, stop in the Interpretive Center to interact with their
exhibits and live animals, or check out one of their many kits to help you explore!
The Pollinatarium at the University of Illinois will teach you about the importance
of pollinators such as bees and butterflies in our ecosystem on a walk through
their grounds or at their exhibits.
PRAIRIE FARM
Sheep, goats, lion rabbits, pigs, and more-you can visit with all the farm animals
at this gem in Champaign every summer. Pack your swimsuit as Sholem Aquatic
Center is just next door.
SPORTING EVENTS
Put on some orange and blue and get ready to support the impressive Fighting
Illini student-athletes. From gymnastics to track & field to baseball and softball,
15 women's and men's sports are free to attend, often with engaging activities
for kids. Or head over to Parkland College in support of the Cobras, who can
claim national championships for several sports.
