We're talking with Bill Conger, with the Peoria Riverfront Museum, about their new exhibit, "Mythic Creature: Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids."
The exhibit looks at how these creatures have been depicted in popular culture, and includes examples of the real-world animals who inspired the legends. Conger says it's designed to appeal to both children and adults, and is an excellent fit for the summer, when families have more free time. The museum is also hosting other events in conjunction with this exhibit -- including an art contest, and a Kids' Night event on July 14th.
"Mythic Creatures" will be on display through September 30th at the Peoria Riverfront Museum.
