We live nearby so we have yearly passes and my grandkids would go everyday if it was up to them. It really is a delightful place and fun for both kids and parents/g'parents. Very interactive and educational. Even my 18 month old grandkid is occupied for hours! And my 4 year old is in heaven. The area also has a... More

My daughter enjoyed visiting here but it is pricey for young kids. They don't offer discount pricing for homeschoolers. It is hands and kids love it. Parking was free which is a bonus and there is a cafe in the building, however we didn't eat there.

Kohls Childrens Museum has interactive rooms that entice children from 2 years old and up. The children learn about science and gain understanding of concepts based on where they are cognitively. If they do not understand a concept, they can just have fun interacting with the many experiences available to them

Best parts of the Museum are the restaurant and the outdoor park area ( with things to find lists). Many displays inside are hard for children to work, as they just don't have the strength they demand. It's very difficult to build a great Children's Museum, and Kohl again confirms that.

The Kohl Children's Museum is a great place for young kids to spend an hour or two. There are so many things for them to explore here and it always seems new to them!

Kohl's Children Museum will keep the kids occupied for hours. It is a museum that teaches kids about science and the world around them in a way that truly engages them and entertains them. I remember going to this museum when I was a child and it was in Evanston...I believe. Now in Glenview, the museum is so much larger... More

This is a pretty average children's museum, which I think would be fun for kids up to about 8 or 9. It had a grocery store, animal hospital, baby hospital, water play area, home building area, reading area, potbellies restaurant, and probably a few other things I've forgotten. It seemed a little expensive for a suburban kid's museum, and it... More

I went with a 9 yr old and two 10 year olds. We went on a Monday morning in mid June. It wasn't overly crowded. The kids were able to interact and play with all of the exhibits without waiting. Although there were several activities that were focused at toddlers (mock grocery, potbelly's store, etc.) there were enough activities that... More

A great place to bring the kids to play. They have rotating exhibits and the museum is designed in a way that keeps the kids interested for long periods of time.

Kids love the place. Totally hands on for them. Gets a little crazy on a busy day or rainy day. My grandson has been there several times and he always enjoys playing there.
