Families can spend hours inside this beloved children’s museum. The exhibits focus on subjects like science, math, art and more. There are even Young Explorers spaces for kids under 2. The museum also holds exciting family events like a Pajama Party, Bubble Bash for New Year’s Eve and special needs playtimes.

Get ready for kids to go wild at this indoor paradise! From rock climbing walls to a ninja course and a giant slide, even parents would want to join. What we love is that there are areas for kids of different skill levels. If your families are night owls, take advantage of the Friday and Saturday special where kids can play from 6-9 p.m. for $20.

This indoor play space was so popular in Mount Prospect that the owners decided to open a second location in Naperville. And how lucky western suburban families are to experience this space designed specifically for younger kids (6 months-age 6) with a slide, ball pit, train table and toys. Note: Be aware that kids over 48 inches tall or older than 6 will not be allowed on the playground.
