Whoa! Did you know that the prehistoric skill of art is influential to bringing places like The Museum of Prehistoric Life at Aikman Wildlife and Adventure in Arcola, Illinois, to life? Did you know that art and dinosaurs can spark creativity and imagination in young children?

Well, Bella York, a thirteen-year-old from Schererville, Indiana, set out on an adventure to ask James Akiman, the founder of the Museum of Prehistoric Life, how art, graphic design, and 3-D elements influenced him and his team to connect the modern world with prehistoric life.

The Prehistoric Museum at the Aikman Wildlife and Adventure is definitely a place everyone must visit. So, get in those cars and take a journey with your families, friends, and children to Arcola, Illinois, 6 miles west from Interstate 57 at exit 203, and enjoy the adventure.

Thank you to James Aikman for his humble heart and the opportunity to explore such a great place.
