On Nov. 1, the Chicago Children’s Museum opens the Cloud Buster, a 37-foot-tall climbable structure. Museum attendees of all ages will be able to explore the new immersive and permanent play space created by artist Kevin Winters of Phoenix-based Ganymede Design Group.

The Cloud Buster includes climbing routes, tubes, bridges and even an “apartment” at the top, which is designed like a city apartment (covered with Chicago-themed decor). You can get a glimpse of the museum’s newest exhibit when walking inside Navy Pier’s Fifth Third Family Pavilion.

“Cloud Buster was built with the understanding that every experience, like the artistic process, is different with every approach,” said Jennifer Farrington, Chicago Children’s Museum President and CEO,  in a press release. “From every vantage point and with every ascent, Cloud Buster delivers a singular experience to each person, each time.”

If you can’t wait until opening day, museum members will be the first to experience the Cloud Buster on Oct. 18-20 and Oct. 25-27. The Cloud Buster is also included in the museum admission. During your next Chicago Children’s Museum, be sure to check out its new special exhibit, The Pigeon Comes to Chicago!: A Mo Willems Exhibit.
