I loved that all the exhibits were in separate rooms. Most of the issues we had while here were with patrons of the museum, not the museum itself. I have a son in a wheelchair and people were just plain rude - letting their kids butt in front of him in line for things and refusing to let us thru... More

I love children's museum, they open kidos mind. And give them opportunity to play and learn according their personality. I've been to couple of children's museum this one comes in second place. Really good not super spacious but if you go in less busy day than perfect. With groupon you can save too. Parking space is good if not crowded... More

The museum has very interesting and fun things for children up to 10 years old. The younger kids enjoy the "grocery" store, the "Pot Belly's Restaurant etc. The older kids enjoy the water room, create a play & many other attractions. Stop in, there are always new displays etc.

Though you can go anytime, just when it gets depressing due to the crappy winter weather, this is the perfect place to bring the toddlers and let them let off steam and learn. There are plenty of things to do for the kids that are interactive. You can work with them, or there are places to sit, if they tire... More

We were on a fast trip to the Chicago area and it was freezing cold. We wanted to do something special with my toddler grandson. This is the perfect place for young children. It is educational and fun. The museum employees are very nice and the museum is kept very clean. My grandson really loved it and we enjoyed watching... More

I often visit this place with my son who loves this place. He especially likes the water theme. Pretty big place with plenty stuff to keep the kids active. They have marts where they can do little shopping with the little shopping carts. They have a music room where they can play drums and xylophone. I highly recommend this place... More

I took my kids, 5 and 2, here over the weekend. Overall it was great for kids their age... not sure how much older kids (over 7) would really get out of this but for younger kids it was nice. But this is a cool place to take them out for the morning. The Kohl Museum has several parent experiences... More

What more can you say when you have a great outdoor area, and all the best play areas indoors? Kids love the grocery store, bus, climbing areas and changing exhibits. So fun to watch them touch everything they can.

One of our favorite places to go when visiting our grandchildren in Evanston. Excellent interactive exhibits for children to explore and learn. Great place to fill hours in a child's day. Safe and understandably always very busy.
