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.

We have been here a couple of times and the grandkids truly enjoyed the many different things for them to do. We thought we would try it today - 18 Apr 15, but found that it was closed for repairs. My suggestion is to check the website before you make a trip, as there is not a definite day that... More

I enjoyed playing along my toddlers with the water table while my older 2 children 9 and 10 were able to play with the air tubes. If you live nearby its a great idea to get the annual membership.

Members for 5 years, great for under 10 yrs old. All hands on, many varieties of thought process for kids to use with the exhibits. Eating area downstairs, can bring your lunch or snack. Free parking. Water works area best at end of visit - may need to dry off. Math, science, engineering all touched on without kids knowing it.... More

We live within 40 minutea of this museum and never really thought to visit. I took my new 3 year old and almost 2 year old here with my mom. Both my boys are runners, so first and most important suggestion is to have 1 adult to 1 toddler. It would be easy for someone tobleave with your child if... More

We have visited Dupage Children's Museum several times with our grandchildren. They are always excited to go and there are plenty of activities to interest them. Within the past year, the museum added an informal cafe in the basement. It is very popular.

Lots of hands on things for the kids. Loved letting my son just wander and explore everything. Plan on spending a couple hours here.

Took my 4 year old here in December… he had a lot of fun! Lots to see, do, and experiment. I think the entrance fee is a little high, but we had a Groupon :) You can put your stuff in the communal coat room or get a decent locker for .50 cents (bring quarters). They have smaller lockers too,... More
