Took my great niece and nephew to the museum as alternative to a movie on a cold Saturday. Instead of zoning out in front of a screen, these preschoolers had a day of exploring, learning and fun. We've got our next afternoon already scheduled.

All five grandkids (six and under) love this place! Lots of age-appropriate things to do (no matter if non-walking infant, toddler, or elementary age kiddo). Well worth the time and $$. The handyman construction shack is a special favorite!

This is one of my daughter's favorite places to go, and it's one of my favorite places to take her. Learning could not be made any more fun!

My grandchildren love this place! Though they live in NYC and visit the kids' museums in each of the buroughs, they consider this one special and expect to go there each time they are in town. There are wind tunnels, bubble and water play areas, light puzzles, etc. The current temporary exhibit is of DaVinci imagined machines.

Nice museum but needs more parking. We didn't like having to walk from outside the parking lot in the cold with young kids. Members should have prefered parking.

There are a lot of activities for kids ages 3 to 9 , as those are the ages of my kids. There's an area to eat snacks in the basement. Definitely a great experience with the kids. The best time to go would not be the weekend as it can at times be overwhelming. But overall definitely worth a visit... More

We've been to this museum twice now with our 2.5 year old. We love how much there is for him to play with and how creative many of the play areas are. From magnatiles to shadow fun to lighted peg creations there is something for everyone. I thought the workshop area is really neat for older kids to make wooden... More

I took my three grandchildren to this place and they throughly enjoyed it (so did grandma/grandpa). Hands on fun, demonstrations which involved the kids. They did not want to leave. Great day of fun and memories.

Dupage Children's Museum is a terrific place to bring children, especially under 10 years old. We like it so much we gifted our grandchildren with a year's membership. So many creative ways to play and learn there. Excellent activities!
