Explore in 10,000 square feet of hands on learning.  Change the tires on a car in the Wreck Resort Auto Center, serve sundaes in the Soda Shop, invent a robot  in the Invention Center, get everything on your grocery list in the Shop-a-Lot Market, and set the table in My House.  You can also get lost in imagination and another time in the two-story Castle. Youngest visitors can play and climb in the new Little Squire Toddler area for height 36" and under. Visit the live animal room ($1 admission is used to care for animals) and dig for dinosaurs in Dino Tracks. Explore and More activities take place daily.  Plus, stroll the rest of Perry Farm Park's 4 miles of paved, scenic walking trails winding through prairie, meadows, woods and along the Kankakee River. The park also features an accessible playground and pavilion with public restrooms. Each year the museum closes for 2-4 weeks at the end of August and the beginning of September, so call before you visit.
