Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the museum at the ages of 5 and 8. There was something for everyone. Definitely worth a stop

This museum could easily take up a whole day. We were, however, somewhat surprised that some displays were not included in the basic admission price and required additional funds.

This is my third time to go. The displays are excellent and special exhibits are better every time I go. Excellent to visit - a must when in Chicago.
