Secrets to discovering downtown Chicago with kids


Exploring museum wonders

  • If you live in Chicago, you can check out a free museum pass at your local library. A big savings.
  • Museum memberships rock. Buy online and look for reciprocals to save.
  • It's cheaper to park by the back door entrance at the Museum of Science and Industry. And there's hardly ever a line to get in.
  • The Art Institute offers complimentary stroller rental. And kids under 14 are always free.
  • Never let the kids buy a souvenir. Otherwise they'll ask every time and you'll waste too much time. Make the adventure the prize.
