Play builds strong brains, strong bonds, and a bright future by allowing children to push boundaries, connect with others, and discover new things. In the Museum’s hands-on environment, play leads the way to building self confidence, strengthening problem-solving skills, learning to work together, and more. 


As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, DuPage Children’s Museum relies on the generosity of the community to extend the benefits of learning through play to ALL children. We need YOUR help to Keep the Play Growing!

Your contribution will help welcome more visitors, create new exhibits, continue our education and outreach, and provide children unique and authentic, hands-on learning experiences.

Please help us keep the play growing and consider a gift to DuPage Children’s Museum today.

Children & Play Grow Together

My little guy, Theo, is literally growing up in this Museum. Learning to crawl, taking his first steps, to off and running: all have happened while engaging in this space. As Theo’s brain makes new connections, the natural born scientist inside of him awakens and so does his ability to learn new, more advanced things. Watching his development is amazing, and it brings me so much joy, but it is how his curiosity and desire to learn continue to grow that fills my heart. And now, when I see him in the exhibit space, and I see that spark, I know that his repeated experiences at the Museum are laying the foundation for a lifetime of curiosity and engaged learning. Creating environments and experiences that support this growth is what DuPage Children’s Museum does best. Children and play grow together. Read the full story HERE.

Our Reach

This past year, DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM) has touched the lives of over 335,000 visitors in the Museum. And beyond our walls in the community, DCM reached over 30,000 students and 2900 educators through School Programs.


Through DCM’s Community Access Network, the Museum partnered with social service agencies throughout the Chicagoland region to ensure access for all families who would otherwise not be able to benefit from such unique learning experiences. Thanks to collaboration with partners and support from donors, more than 2000 families became members through our Family Access Membership Program.
