Illinois Railway Museum Volunteer Patch

We recognize that it may sometimes be necessary to bring your children along when you are working at the museum.  For their own safety and welfare, however, the museum has adopted strict regulations which must be followed in all instances.

Children under the age of 12 years are prohibited from shop areas at all times, except with the specific authorization of the responsible department superintendent for each visit.

Children under the age of 18 years must be under the direct and immediate control of a responsible adult at all times while on the premises.  Leaving children to play on their own in any area of the museum is not sufficient; they must be within your sight and under your direct control at all times.

Any volunteer who brings a child under 18 onto the premises thereby consents and agrees to assume all liability for any injuries or damages of any nature whatsoever resulting from the child's presence, and further agrees to protect, indemnify, and defend the museum against all claims arising from the child's presence.

We want your children to enjoy their visits to the museum.  Please help us keep those visits safe for everyone.
