Chicago Children's Museum Tours

The museum opens up an interactive world of exploration and play for children, with a range of exhibits, programs, and events. Once housed in the hallways of the Chicago Public Library, it became an anchor tenant on Navy Pier in 1995 where it continues to expand. Everything is educational and hands-on — children get the chance to dig for dinosaur bones as they learn about prehistoric times, or simply have fun as they captain their own boat or play in the extensive water area. Here children learn by doing, whether it’s building a structure, fishing in a river, or climbing the museum’s three-story schooner. 

Kids can build or their own structures in the Skyline exhibit, or explore an existing scale of them in the Kids Town. There are essentials for play — costumes and toys — throughout. All in all there are three floors, so it easily makes for a full day of adventures and learning. It is the fourth largest children’s museum in the United States. 

Practical Info

The museum is located on Chicago’s Navy Pier, and is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm, with hours extended to 8 pm on Thursdays. Admission is $14 for both children and adults.
