Chicago Children's Museum at Navy Pier

The museum features 3 vibrant floors of exhibits and activities that provide engaging educational content focusing on literacy, science, math, and art. Some popular exhibits include: Dinosaur Expedition, where kids can dig for dinosaur bones in an authentic excavation pit; WaterWays, an interactive set of pulleys, pumps, and pipes showcasing the wonders of water; daily free family art workshops; and Skyline, which explores the art and technology that keep Chicago's tallest buildings standing. Scout groups have the opportunity to explore the entire museum at their own pace and customize their journey, working towards badges while they play, create and investigate.
