If you haven't been up to Kohl Children's Museum in a while, this summer just might be the perfect time to visit. They've got some great temporary exhibits, some permanent exhibits that are especially popular this time of year, and all of the usual family faves. Here are our five picks not to miss.You might also like:
If you're headed up to Ravinia for one of their open-air concerts - or to your park district, for that matter - first stop at this permanent exhibit that explores how sounds turn into music. Sure, parents might think it's noisy in there, but kids have a blast plucking strings, beating drums and creating their own music box melody. We especially liked the video screen tucked into the back corner where you can dance and see your body make colorful patterns.
