Great place. Had a wonderful time as a family at the Lake County Discovery Museum. This place is such a unique find in the suburbs. I love that I can take with entire family there and we all will have fun. It has the best of both worlds - indoor and outdoor fun. Great camps, programs and events. If you haven't checked it out, it is a must!

Great Place for a families that want a close get away. The exhibits are always changing and are educational and fun. Love that it right on Forest Preserve Grounds and that we can hike and picnic for a full days outing.
