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).
