Chicago Children's Museum's institutional commitment to community engagement demands that we develop mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with community partners. We are frequently out and about in Chicago's neighborhoods attending meetings and facilitating educational programs and family activities at community-based organizations, schools, and festivals.
CCM staff will facilitate “Let’s Play!”, an inspirational and educational presentation that explains why play is essential for both children and adults. Contact us to learn more.

Fairs, Festivals, and More
Community-Based Fairs and Festivals are fee-based, CCM-facilitated activities for your community events. We love to bring our fun, educational activities to health fairs, back-to-school gatherings, and family events in communities around Chicago. For more information, view our informational flyer or contact us.
Kids on the Fly (Located at O'Hare Airport)
Let your imagination soar in this aviation-themed playground located at Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Terminal 2. Play, pretend, and practice skills as you pilot a plane, propel a helicopter, direct air traffic, and crawl through crazy cargo crates.
