What is there to do?

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.

How much does it cost?

Need a little extra help?

We think it's important that the Museum be equally available to guests with any level of physical, visual, auditory, or cognitive challenge. All public areas are 100% ADA-compliant. The facility and all exhibits have been designed using the principles of universal design, which go beyond accessibility with an approach that uses multi-sensory experiences as educational tools. These experiences allow all guests with any level of physical, visual, auditory, and cognitive ability to experience the Museum and its offerings.
