Kohl Children’s Museum of Greater Chicago is the only museum in the Chicago area that exclusively provides exhibits and programming for children ages birth to 8. All 17 permanent exhibits are hands-on and interactive.
Children are invited to shop in the child-sized Dominick’s grocery store, find their way through the Discovery Maze, cure stuffed animals in the Pet Vet, make sandwiches in the play Potbelly Cafe, dance and sing in Music Makers, and make a splash in Water Works. There are also four infant areas that provide sensory experiences for children up to 18 months old. Our Adventures in Art studio is designed to provide inspiration for children to explore their inner creativity with programs that change twice a month. Daily Discoveries, led by Museum staff, provide children with opportunities to learn about math, science and social studies.
The Museum features 200 free parking spots, a cafe and store, and is fully accessible to all children, with any level of physical or cognitive ability.
