The Ray Bradbury Experience Museum in Waukegan, Illinois

In Development Now!

The Ray Bradbury Experience Museum is the long-overdue tribute to Waukegan’s native son, Ray Bradbury, now underway in donated space at 13 N. Genesee Street in Waukegan, IL.

The museum is being designed to engage visitors in Bradbury’s imagination expressed through his stories and vision of a better world. Exhibits will feature Bradbury’s themes of space travel, freedom of expression, comics and more, using virtual and augmented reality.



Volunteers from Waukegan, Arizona, California, Indiana, the UK and beyond are contributing their talents to RBEM. They’re involved in marketing, art, education, photography, writing, social media, and exhibits. There’s a volunteer role for you! Pictured from left to right: Terry Fertig, Patrick O’Keefe, Irene Edgar, Orty Ortwein, John Patrick Mullins, Johnathan Mullins, Sandra Sarsha Patrocious, Keith Michaelek, Vance D. Wyatt.


When RBEM opens, you’ll enter unique, interactive, even transformative, exhibits that will immerse you in Ray Bradbury’s imagination. Your gift will help build these highly visual experiences.


“We’re all of the same family that exists throughout history to explain ourselves to one another,” said Ray Bradbury. What’s your story “to explain?” Maybe you met Bradbury or have a letter he sent you. Maybe his ideas influenced you in a special way. RBEM is actively seeking those stories. Take this opportunity to learn more!
