What is there to do?

It's time to PLAY at Kohl Children's Museum in Greater Chicago, because this is a museum designed JUST for kids!

Perfect for those creative and playful children up to 8 years, the Kohl Children's Museum features 17 permanent hands-on and interactive exhibits that make learning fun. Each exhibit offers a unique way to enable children to learn, discover, and develop.

Kids can use those imaginations as they shop in the child-sized grocery store, just like Mom and Dad do, perhaps buying something for their new restaurant they are opening!

They can challenge themselves to complete and conquer the Discovery Maze with friends, or cure stuffed animals in the Pet Vet.

Want to make delicious sandwiches for customers in your own Potbelly Cafe, or perhaps you want to make a SPLASH in Water Works? No better time to cool off at Kohl Children's Museum!

Performers can hone their skills as they sing and dance in Music Makers, or they can get those fingers messy in the Art Studio, designed to offer inspiration so kids can explore their inner creativity with programs that change twice a month.

The museum also offers four infant areas that offer sensory experiences for kids up to 18 months old, so they can enjoy time away from the bigger kids, and make new friends their own age!

Don't miss the Daily Discoveries, led by Museum staff, that offer kids with opportunities to learn about social studies, math and science - all very important subjects!

So kids, are you ready to play at this Greater Chicago play and discovery space? You never know what you just might learn, so let's GO!
