This summer, a museum will be added to the Field of Dreams sight.

One of the advantages of living in Rockford is the location. We are close to many places like Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee, Peoria, Quad Cities, Wisconsin, and Iowa to name a few. There are a lot of great things to do in the Forest City but if you want to get out of town for a little bit, you have choices.

If you're a fan of movies, sports, and baseball a cool place to check out is the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa. It's a nice little day trip for the family. It's where they filmed the movie. A few years ago, I made a visit out there. It was really cool.

Your next visit will include a new attraction. They're adding a museum this summer.

According to,

"A new museum is set to open in Dyersville on August 7. It will give visitors a special behind the scenes look at the making of the 1989 movie."

MLB will also host a game there between the Chicago White Sox vs St. Louis Cardinals in August.
