At the Intersection of Fun & Learning

Play allows kids to make new discoveries, explore new spaces, share experiences, and see themselves and their world in new and exciting ways. For 30 years, DuPage Children’s Museum has been inspiring children and their adults with experiences that encourage curiosity, discovery, and collaboration.


“We had such a wonderful time today at the museum. The staff did such an excellent job with cleaning, the capacity was low, and our boys were thrilled to be back. Thank you for all you do!"

Explore Art From The Inside Out!

Have you ever stepped into an art museum and wished you could jump right into the painting? Now, you can do just that! Children can explore five works of art – some iconic, some contemporary – and “step into” interactive settings, gaining an appreciation for the world of art.

The Framed: Step into Art traveling exhibit emphasizes that children are never too young to experience the beauty of art.

Let Your Child Lead the Way Through our Exhibit Neighborhoods


"Our grandsons could have spent half a day in the workshop and with the electronic boards. We loved watching them explore hands on… so important. The staff in the workshop was awesome. Very patient and did not talk down to our 6 and 8 year old."
