The Chicago Children's Museum presents an array of ways to play with a wealth of fun-filled, family-friendly experiences and presentations. The ‘Tinkering Lab’ offers a unique DIY maker-space for visitors to tinker in a workshop with real tools and materials and the freedom to innovate and explore life with interactive activities such as the Pegboard Challenge, the Tool Bar, and the Early Learning Nook. Kids can make a splash at the Waterways experience with pipes, pulleys and wheels that flow, squirt and pump water in fun, sensory ways.
The Dinosaur Expedition boasts a re-creation of the real Saharan Desert expedition where a new type of dinosaur was discovered by Chicago paleontologist Paul Sereno and features a life-size skeleton of suchomimus, and an excavation pit with skulls, bones and teeth. Skyline presents the chance to design and build a one-of-a-kind structure using tools, wood and other gear, and includes special activities for younger children and toddlers.
