Have visited this museum several times with both my granddaughters . It is amazing interactive and so hands-on everyone has a great time . I would highly recommend it to anyone with young children but give yourself at least 2+ hours to do it justice

We visited the museum with some friends & their daughter. The babies were 10 & 15 months. We spent most our time in the "young explorers" areas in each exhibit neighborhood as the babies were both under two. They both had a blast, especially with he water, bubbles, & playing with other little kids. We will definitely go back often... More

We took the kids to the Dupage Children's Museum on a Summer Friday. It's a small but fun den of activity, particularly for kids under 7. The museum is two stories with many different activities. A number of them are more science-fair types which may or may not be fun for all kids. The highlights are: - The wood workshop... More

We have been to several Children's Museums. This one was not too large and not too small it was well-balanced and kept our kids well entertained for about two and a half or 3 hours. Unfortunately it closes at 5 p.m. or we would have stayed longer. There is a section that involves a lot of water so keep that... More

Great place for toddlers to young teens. Hands-on activities related to the arts, science , power, puzzles, even an inside "water park" plus lots more. Parking is limited. Kids of all ages will be entertained.

Though I no longer have small children of my own, I mentor parents as part of my work with Project HELP, a child abuse prevention organization here in DuPage County. The DCM has become my go-to place for parents with young children. Here they can playfully interact with their kids in a safe (and air conditioned) environment and help their... More

This is a great place for kids of all ages. I just took my great-grandson there, and his mother used to visit the museum when it was in Wheaton, years ago. I chose to do the Family Membership, $130 and for an extra $5 you add about four more museums. My great grandson is about 18 months, I took him... More
