What people are saying:

This place was nice and convenient, had nice air when it was hot outside! Didn't spend too much time here but it looked exciting, there were A LOT of people but like I said I wasn't there for long.

    Hands on

    We went to celebrate my four year old grandsons birthday. Great hands on fun. He was exhausted by time we left. There were a few things we felt we would let him experience when he was older.

Additional Information

Introduction

What once started as a series of small exhibits housed in the hallways of the Chicago Public Library now fills a 57,000-square-foot facility and serves over 650,000 people each year. Located at Chicago's Navy Pier, the Chicago Children's Museum was founded in 1982 by the Junior League of Chicago. Fifteen permanent exhibits exist here, offering interactive learning experiences for kids (who get in for free if they're 15 or under). The museum currently has its heart set on moving, but for now, guests can catch this popular attraction at its waterfront location.
