At the Intersection of Fun & Learning

Come visit one of Chicagoland and the Western Suburbs’ favorite places, where 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.


“I love this museum - it's designed so well for a range of ages. We were there for 2 hours and could have spent more time there too. The kids loved it - it's so hands on and each section has something fun to offer. We will certainly be back!”

Patricia J, Trip Advisor Review

Play Leads the Way!

Play allows kids to release energy, push boundaries, connect with others, and discover new things. Play leads the way to… building self-confidence and discovering the joy in conquering a challenge; flexing critical thinking muscles through solving a problem, playing a game, or planning the next move; making new friends, working together, and learning cooperation and sharing; and strengthening the bond between child and caregiver.

“Brought 2 of my grand kids here and we had a great time. Very interactive, lots to do, a lot of fun and they are learning at the same time.”
