Amazing place for kids and surprisingly brings the kids out in the adults!! We take our 14month old niece everyweek and it never gets old. The bubble section is our favorite. Its great to see all the amazing learning toys they have in the toddler section. We prefer to being our own snacks however there is a kid friendly cafe... More

We bought a membership! My kids love the water tables, making giant bubbles, learning about light, playing with Magnatiles. I'm not a huge fan of the building station with hammers and saws. It's a lot to manage multiple kids. Upstairs was the China exhibit and it rotates seasonally to other exhibits. We need a second day to cover the art... More

My kids loved going to this museum when they were younger. Definitely for toddler-early elementary school aged kids. Not much for older kids. They loved the water play area and bubble station.

We decided to take our kids here based on the reviews. This is a great spot for kids up to age 12 max. Our kids loved it! It's more like a kids science centre. The facility allows children to play and have fun while exercising their creativity. The construction section is amazing but is catered more for the older kids... More

This is a great hands on museum where children of varied ages can enjoy and play all while learning in a scientific based museum. Some of the favorite displays are, the wind tornado, being inside a giant bubble, digging for artifacts and the freeze frame photo booth. It does get crowded and they offer a yearly membership. You can also... More

I live in Naperville and took my grandson there regularly when he was little and came to visit. It is a three story building with a great water play station, building center with real tools, crafts - changes almost daily, puppets,math activities, costumes, etc. My grandson loved putting on costumes then going over to the large block section and make...
