Thanks to its great success last year, Quad Cities Museum Week has returned. The second annual week of promotions and special events begins on Saturday (6/18) and continues through next weekend.

And helping to organize the celebration is the Quad Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau. Vice president Charlotte Doehler-Morrison says last year attendance increased at the participating museums by anywhere from 5 to 50 per cent.
