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. Please consider supporting the Museum.


“The amount of materials provided, preparation, engagement, and encouragement by camp counselors, was worth every penny and more. We’ve tried a number of different camps both in person and virtual and this was by far the best camp we have ever encountered! We are so sad it is over but can’t wait to sign up for future camps!”

Pumpkin Palooza

Saturday, October 24, 9 am – 1 pm.

Pumpkin Palooza is full of fun, not frightening festivities for the whole family! Come in costume and celebrate the season in the Museum’s parking lot. This event engages visitors in creative, not-so-scary experiences that explore S.T.E.A.M. concepts through play.

“I really liked the format (having independent work times, group Zoom times to learn and check back in, etc.) and the use of technology (Zoom, Bublup). The balance of technology and hands on materials was great. The camp themes really brought out the creative side of our son!”
