The Kinder House, a 1907 house museum, is open for tours of the first floor during those hours. The Visitor Center is wheelchair and stroller accessible, but the Kinder House is only accessible by going up several steps. The summer program Afternoon Adventures for kids takes place on Wednesday afternoons (June 18-Aug. 13) with themes, topics, and fun activities relating to Des Plaines history.
