There’s only one place in Chicago that your kids can help dig up a dinosaur, decorate a snowman and navigate a riverboat! Kids and adults alike will love an afternoon at Chicago Children’s Museum. With its location right on Navy Pier, the museum is a perfect component to a fun-filled family day out on the town. Let your kids lead you through a labyrinth of exhibits where they can do everything from create their own artwork to climb around on a large schooner boat. Most of the interactive exhibits are open to all ages, so parents don’t even have to spend the day merely observing and missing out on all the fun! Once you’ve had your fill of the exhibits, head out to Navy Pier to ride the Ferris wheel and grab some food to really elevate your outing from a regular family day to a truly unforgettable family experience!
