NORMAL - The Children's Discovery Museum is back open and boasting a big crowd, after being closed for annual cleaning and maintenance.

In honor of National Grandparents Day staff chose to make the occasion special.

Grandma's and grandpa's received free admission all day Sunday.

Dozens chose to take part, exploring the facility's exhibits and games.

Some patrons took their grandchildren, while others decided to be a kid themselves and went with a friend.

"Everybody has gotten a chance to do things there's been an energy of the museum,” said staff member Shelly Hanover.  “We've seen grandparents connecting with other grandparents which is always cute when you see that on the museum floor."

Staff hope more families make National Grandparents Day a playful tradition at the museum.
