Where are we going today?
If you love indoor play, then you will feel like Exploritorium is the Disneyland of indoor fun!
Exploritorium was voted "Best Rainy Day Activity Site" by Chicago Magazine, and when you visit, you will see why! It's SO much more than an indoor playground!
Here, it's not just the kids that can have the fun, but the parents too. Through interactive play, you can all enjoy a great time playing, and learning, and creating, and discovering!
Each of the features within Exploritorium are designed with a specific element in mind, to ensure kids are learning and developing as well as having fun.
There is SO much to do! Kids can play make-believe in the costumed dress up area, and be anyone they want to be. They can make a splash in the water play area, and even experience new heights in the 2 1/2 story tubes and tunnels!
Active kids will love to scale new heights on the climbing wall, and those little ones who love to figure out puzzles, and build will love the Engineering Megastation.
Got little kids in the family? Then the Toddler Zone is perfect for them. With age appropriate activities and time away from the older kids, here they can really shine!
Don't miss the fun events that they hold across the year, including Storybook Corner and Amazing Animal encounters where kids can actually MEET and PET creatures from all over the world.
See, we told you that Exploritorium was much more than your regular indoor play centers.
So no matter what the weather, you can know that the fun in Chicago won't ever stop!
