The New CCM

A New Chicago Children's Museum

One of the most popular and acclaimed children's museums in the U.S. is going to get even better!

With 30 years of experience in the fields of play, informal learning and child development, our team of experts are hard at work developing engaging and educational experiences that incorporate the latest findings about how children learn. Families continue to grow with us—those who visited when we opened in 1982 are returning with their own kids today. We’re reimagining old favorites and creating even more ways to play and learn for the next generation of museumgoers. See below for a glimpse of what’s in store! 

Young children in a world-class city deserve a world-class place to play and learn. The new Chicago Children's Museum will be that destination.

We can't wait to have you over.
