At Chicago Children’s Museum, play is serious business.
When we play, we learn. We create. We strengthen and grow.
Chicago Children’s Museum’s mission is to improve children’s lives by creating a community where play and learning connect.
In 1982, a group of Junior League of Chicago members saw slashes to arts programming for children throughout the city and took action. Joining forces with the Education Resource Center, Columbia College, and Loyola University they founded Express-Ways Children’s Museum, which would become Chicago Children’s Museum.
For the last 3 decades, Chicago has grown from that museum, housed in a couple of hallways in what’s now the Chicago Cultural Center, to what it is today: a place that has provided arts programs, STEM experiments, imaginative play, and more to over 11 million children and their parents and caregivers.
We believe that space matters. Housed in Navy Pier, Chicago Children’s Museum is intentionally designed for experimentation, creativity, and learning for all children. We focus on accessibility, inclusion, and the pursuit of childhood, ensuring valuable and memorable experiences for all visitors.
