OK, so here is the bottom line. This is a great place for your young child to explore many hands on exhibit. I took my 6 year old grandson. He took off and went from one exhibit to another. Everything is hands on interaction to some greater or lesser extend. I followed him around enjoying giving him some guidance but... More

The weather is getting cold, this is the PERFECT place to take the kids! You could EASILY spend the whole day here! They often have very FUN activities in addition to the fixed areas such as the "build it" area where your kids can build great things with a hammer/nails, also the "water" area where they have a large water...

The children's science museum is an great way to see and share an exciting time with your Grand kids. We took our 2.5 and 4.5 year old boys. Playing with the water toys and the excellent air flow tubes area were a highlight for the younger boy. The electrical area and tubes of balls held the 4.5yr old interest for... More

Can be busy on weekends when it is raining, but very great place to explore for all ages. Nice area to store items you don't want to carry all the time. Great staff to help if needed. Well maintained.

We just spent many hours at DCM. Our grandchildren ages 7and 5 had a awesome time. It was great fun for us as grandparents to see the children having so much fun! We took a break and went out for lunch. They wanted to return and we stayed until closing at 4:00. My only suggestion would be to have better... More

We were so happy to take our granddaughter to DCM. SHe had so much fun and loved exploring all of the areas age-appropriate for her. We might need a disco ball for her room! Clean facility, great use of space, easy to navigate!

We live in the area and so when I specifically, was young it was great but as children grow older and older it starts to get bland because it's just simply geared for younger kids but if you have younger children then great! The children's museum really fun for them. From what I remember, if you r into hands-on its... More

The Dupage Children's Museum is a must see for families visiting the area. There are tons of interactive activities for kids of all ages. I have taken my grandchildren there many times and they are enthused to go each and every time. Volunteers help to introduce/explain activities and children are allowed to try everything for themselves. It's a smile maker... More

My kids love it here. Every time we drive by they beg to go. The only thing I don't like about it is that you have to pay for adults.
