The kids won't want to leave!

This place has entertained our son for many years! He'd spend all day here if we let him. The space changes to keep things super interesting!

My friend and I took our two year old boys to the museum. They loved it! Two is the perfect age to take them because they. An do anything. Recommend getting a pass because it can be expensive.

My family and I are Naperville residents who frequent the museum quite a bit. We really enjoy going on 3rd Thursday Nights and Friday Family Evenings when crowds are much smaller. Highlights include the art room and upstairs revolving exhibits.

Fun and family-friendly. It's well maintained and clean. They have many different hands on exhibits, so kids are having fun and learning at the same time. They sell food and drinks downstairs with a "cafeteria feel". There are healthy options available as well. Admission prices are fair.

MY kids hammered away while i had a new born who slept though the whole experience. The museum is a great place for all families. I also had 3 other Kindergarten"s with me hammering while my new born slept. It was a fun place to visit with kids of all ages.

Really great place for kids, toddlers and even autistic kids. There is a lot for them to see and be hands-on with! There are two levels. They have stairs and an elevator to get to the upper level. The upper level gives kids a chance to explore their artsy and creative side with artwork and some craft exhibits. You can... More

My wife and I are members and take our 24 month old granddaughter here often. There are many, many activities age appropriate for all ages of children. We just love to watch her play.

Took my great niece and nephew to the museum as alternative to a movie on a cold Saturday. Instead of zoning out in front of a screen, these preschoolers had a day of exploring, learning and fun. We've got our next afternoon already scheduled.

All five grandkids (six and under) love this place! Lots of age-appropriate things to do (no matter if non-walking infant, toddler, or elementary age kiddo). Well worth the time and $$. The handyman construction shack is a special favorite!
