children's museum on Navy Pier
The museum is at the front of Navy Pier and has a lot of great exhibits. You can spend a good amount of time Some of our favorites include:
Fire station: Put on your boots and jacket / pants and slide down the pole to board the firetruck!
Fossil digging: Grab your tools and uncover dinosaur bones!
Water tables: Put on a waterproof covering to protect your clothes from the wet and have fun learning about the way that water moves.
Pottery: Put on a smock and get some clay and create your own masterpiece!
Kids’ Town: Put gas in the car, go shopping, and play house!
Climbing / active area: There is a great climbing section that goes up a level and out onto a drawbridge. My 5 year-old daughter did this approximately 10 times. Stay tuned as they renovate an enhanced climbing interaction (under construction as of August 2019).
