What a great place to take children for hands on learning. Kids of all ages were here but primarily from 6 months to 5 years old. Wow, is there a lot of stuff for them to do! Lots of fun and learning with other kids. Clean, safe fun!

For a museum on the smaller side, this is fantastic. Very clean, lots and lots of really interesting learning/playing tools for kids! Spend an hour or two very easily. Memberships make a lot of sense if you live in the area.

A good place to visit with younger children. We visited this museum several times many years back (sorry about the travel date).

I took my 3 year old grand daughter to DuPage Children's Museum today. She had a blast. It was not the first time she's been there and she always enjoys it, whether her older sister (8) is with her or not. They have wonderful hands on things to do and they change the hands on things to do for the... More

Recently reopened. Lots of hands-on exhibits for kids, especially elementary and younger. Not cheap but not pricey. Many volunteers from the community. An asset to Naperville.

My 2.5 year old had a blast here. She really enjoyed the water station and blowing bubbles. We went on a Friday and there were a lot of people here. It's a little pricey to get in, but my daughter had a free pass to get in through her library. We would go again in the future.

My three girls all loved this hands-on museum. I practically had to drag them out of the museum and I actually saw three parents carrying crying children out because they did not want to leave! There are so many fun and educational things for kids to do here. From water play to shadow fun, building with all kinds of materials... More

I visit here often with my grandchildren, ranging in age from 3 to 12. It is a favorite destination for them. There are a variety of interactive exhibits that the kids never tire of. Additionally, I love the SMART Cafe option on site for eating. It offers a kid-friendly menu with healthy options.

Excellent place to take the kids. Lots of things for them to do, build, explore and just be themselves. Very interactive for all.
