The Dupage has been closed until Sept. 2015 due to a water pipe breaking and flooding the building. Before the pipde burst, it was an excellent place to bring childern 2-10 years old. The kids have a great deal of time exploring, water, bubblies, light, sound, gaears, electricity, etc.

We went there for a family friend's 2nd birthday. He really liked the water section. I personally the water section myself, along with the ball machine, and just about all of it! It's a good day trip for anyone who lives in the area.

Hands on experience with science background makes this a full day for the ones that need activity on a rainy day.

I cannot count how many times we have been to the Childrens Museum in Naperville. There are so many fun things to explore, especially for the younger children. They can explore wind, water (don't forget some extra clothes, the kids get soaked ;-)), shapes, sizes, music, etc. It is definitely worth a visit! And you will probably end up buying... More

We had my son's 3rd birthday here and it was excellent! The kids spent the entire day there with plenty to do. The party coordinator was very accommodating and it is a fun learning experience for kids of all ages. Even the adults had fun interacting with their children. We had a blast and my son's loved his birthday party!

The Dupage Children's Museum is currently closed due to massive water damage from a burst pipeline. The museum is taking the opportunity to fast-forward a $2 million renovation due to the damage, and is temporarily closed. Their website shows pictures of the flood and restoration, and promises that the original museum will re-open sometime in the summer 2015. Until then,... More

My boys really loved all the activities they had. I would definitely bring them back if we hadn't moved an hour and a half away. Very hands on and kids can learn a lot.

They had a flood so they moved into the shopping mall for now. I will give them another chance but my local library has more and better things for my granddaughter to do.

I've been there many times when my kids were growing up and then did not for years until I went with friends and their kids recently. It was surprising how much new stuff is there and how many activities there are for young and old kids, including adults!

We have a 2.5 year old and 8 month old. We have been going to the museum for the last 1.5 years and our son still loves it. He enjoys himself so much that he often have to sternly usher him out while he drags his feet and crocodile tears up. I think that says is all.
