THE FUTURE  We’re building an interactive museum that immerses visitors in Ray Bradbury’s imagination and stories, anchored in his hometown of Waukegan, IL, his celebrated “Green Town.”

NOW  RBEM is open for visitors. Watch this page for scheduled openings or make an appointment.

On #Giving Tuesday, a day of global generosity,
Please support Ray Bradbury Experience Museum on Giving Tuesday, November 30, 2021.

The pandemic challenged us. Yet, we went forward, fulfilling our mission. Thanks to your past
support and our dedicated Committee and volunteers, RBEM opened on August 22, 2020 and
went on virtually and in-person safely following COVID restrictions.

We’ve welcomed more than 800 Ray Bradbury fans in person, and more online!

Now we need your support to continue our mission: to inspire imagination, and foster free-thinking and creativity through engagement in the universal themes and timeless works of Ray Bradbury. On #GivingTuesday or now, please donate. Thank you!

Plan your visit today!
