What people are saying:

The most important thing is: this museum's target audience is families with children (2-12 years old). The exhibits are lively and interesting. We go to the Children’s Museum because children’s museums often have more interactive exhibits than standard natural history/science museums. This is not our pleasure, but we participated in an architectural exhibition, created a skyscraper by hand, and experienced blasting! We think this is a good place for children to explore and learn. More cities need such museums!

Additional Information


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.
