The Children's Discovery Museum in Normal is celebrating its millionth visitor this week, a couple years earlier than estimated when the museum opened. Museum spokeswoman Heather Young says more than half visitors come from outside Bloomington-Normal...

   

Young says the benchmark visitor actually came through the door sometime early this month, but the celebration will go on during twin cities spring break. She says the high cost of gasoline and school district financial woes have cut into field trips in recent years, but the museum is expanding its outreach programs to compensate.
