ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The Discovery Center Museum welcomes an exhibit for 'Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends' on Jan. 12.

The 1500 square-foot exhibit makes its first visit to Illinois.

Children will help Thomas and friends solve a variety of challenges in the exhibit. They can fix moveable parts, flip switches, load freight and fill tanks with water.

As children put their skills to the tests, the smiling faces of Thomas, Percy, Victor and other friends will offer encouragement.

Admission to the exhibit costs $11 for adults and children and $1 for museum members. The exhibit runs through May 12.
