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

Tinkering Camp

Children are capable of so much! Over the course of one week (or three!), Tinkering Camp provides an immersive opportunity to build with real tools to solve real problems. Tinkering promotes creative problem solving, flexible thinking, a failure-positive mindset and to top it off. . . it's incredibly fun!

“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.”
