    Very cute museum. It is divided to sections. Your child can play in different rooms such as the vet, car wash and the market. Great place to let little ones to run around. You can definitely spend there the whole morning or afternoon.

    the Chicago Children's Museum is on Navy Pier and is great for all ages. The only negative is the parking - it's expensive (expect to pay about $22), there's no discount, and there's nowhere else to park. However the museum itself is great - small kids will love the grocery store or digging for fossils or the fire engine. Bigger kids will love the construction sets. (ps the photo associated with this is NOT a photo of the Chicago Children's museum)

What once started as a series of small exhibits housed in the hallways of the Chicago Public Library now fills a 57,000-square-foot facility and serves over 650,000 people each year.
