    i had to correct my previous review. This place is amazing for baby & kids.

    Since my baby is 14 month, I will do detail review for what babies can do here for now;

    3rd floor baby/toddler play area: this place has limited hours per day, so please check the website for details. This place is great for any young babies to toddlers. Lots of sensory toys and environment, books. usually opens for 2 hours or so a day

    3rd floor backyard: shadow, touching flowers, making your face to bumble bee and butterfly. it is great that baby/toddlers as well.

    Every time we go the kids are so excited and so exhausted after. Very interactive and great location to then hang out on Navy Pier.

    Amazing Children's Museum!!! My daughter loved it! Multiple levels with so much to do. Highly recommended for anyone with kids. We took the train into the city and then took the water taxi to Navy Pier. Overall great experience.

    A museum designed with children of all ages in mind. Good mix of activities & exhibits for a child who is a crawler & beyond. Only reason that I rated 4 instead of 5 stars is its location at Navy Pier-- not exactly easy to get to & can be very crowded on holiday weekends.

Tree house: balls, baby pond, fishing catches...etc and you can imagine to fix your own dinner. love it.

first floor - for this year summer 2014, they have circus special area on the left side of the entrance. amazing....kids can make own icecream (of course as imagination only)

Stores by the entrance: they seem to carry good books and toys. must check it out.
