Help Support the Next Generation of Young Learners

In order to prepare children for the future, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity must be nurtured from the very beginning of a child’s life. These foundational skills can be taught to prepare a child for school experiences. The Museum thoughtfully sets the stage for playful learning, active engagement, and joyful discovery which offer experiences to help children master vital, lifelong skills. Museum exhibits, tools, and programs depend on the financial support of our community.

Give A Little, Do A Lot

At DuPage Children’s Museum, we work hard to provide open-ended experiences that allow children to learn through experimentation. A small monthly give can have a big impact. Join us in building the future. Set up a monthly donation at a level comfortable to you.
