Features: Since 1985, Kohl Children's Museum of Greater Chicago has provided hands on learning experiences for our youngest children. The Museum is a leading interactive learning center for young children (birth to eight years) and their parents/caregivers in Chicagoland. 

We understand the power of play and its positive impact on a child’s life – now and in the future. Opportunities provided to children, particularly those with strong parent/child interaction, can directly impact their achievement during their school years. Our developmentally appropriate educational programming allows each child to direct his or her own learning experience, building firm foundations for a later academic and social success.

Why We Go: Perfect for children up to the age of 8, the Kohl Children's Museum Glenview has plenty of activities to promote a child's learning and imagination. A hands on art exhibit allows children to create their own masterpieces, while the Car Care area of the museum teaches kids how cars work. 

  • Plenty of Fun: The Kohl Children's Museum Glenview has 17 interactive exhibits designed to teach, inspire, and promote growth in children.
  • Top 10 Museum: The Kohl Children's Museum IL. was recently named one of the 10 best children's museums in the United States by Parents Magazine.

Inside Knowledge: In order to educate children about the environment, the Kohl Children's Museum Chicago feels that it is necessary to lead by example. The environmentally friendly Chicago museum installed solar panels on the museum's roof, and there are several hands-on exhibits that teach children and adults about environmental issues.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Take a Break: After all the excitement that the Kohl Children's Museum IL. has to offer, the Cosi Cafe is the perfect place for a bite to eat. The menu features many kid-friendly favorites, including grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza, and mac and cheese.   
  • Do Throw a Party: The Kohl Children's Museum is the perfect place to celebrate your child's big day. The party package includes a private party room, free admission for all adults and the birthday child, and access to the museum's many exhibits.  
  • Don't Leave the Kids Alone: Children under the age of 16 are required to have adult supervision at all times when visiting the Kohl Children's Museum IL.    
  • Don't Forget to Donate: The Kohl Children's Museum is community-funded, so make sure to donate a small amount before leaving to ensure the future of the museum's quality exhibits.
