Great architecture and a superb Carillion bell performance every day. Lovely location on top of a small hill. Best appreciated in early fall in the mornings or late afternoon. Very peaceful.

This is a beautiful way to see the whole town from up above. I like how you can walk around and see the river on the back side of it. I was confused where to buy tickets. If you go for the first time, lesson learned. When driving in go to the right to buy tickets first.

Beautiful setting in a beautiful town! If you have some time to spare, just take a walk around the Carrillon. You won't be disappointed!

The tour to the top of the tower is pretty awesome. You get to see all the bells and even see the room they are played from for the concerts. If you go on a clear day, you can see Chicago in the distance which is pretty neat too.

Excellent view of the city! It was also really neat to see the Carillon player play as we ascended the tower!

Its the best thing to do in naperville, well besides procreate. Besides walking along the beautiful riverwalk, the tower is the crown jewel of naperville

Welcome to Naperville's phallic symbol, A lot of money was poured into this and I am not sure for what reason? The park and quarry's nearby are more of a reason to visit than this eye soar.

The Carillon great to look at and nice when it is quiet. The bells are out of tune, the music selection played is really poor compared to what you will find in comparable carillon's in Europe. nice walk up to the top. Concerts along the riverwalk are nice, as is the riverwalk itself. But, the music from the Carillon is... More

We took the tour of the tower and there is a great view from the top. While we were on the tour we found the musician about to play and he gave us an impromptu song on the bells and let my two year old hit one of the keys. The bars are close enough that we felt safe having... More

As the name implies, this carillon was built to celebrate the year 2000. It is right in the heart of the Riverwalk and regular concerts are held with live performers. Programmed music can also be played and the range and tone of the instrument are excellent.
