June 1 – July 31, 2014

Blow it up! Melt it down! Take the leap! It’s “danger done right” at Chicago Children’s Museum, where we’re featuring healthy, smart risk-taking (you know, like licking a battery, mastering a power tool or becoming a human wrecking ball).

Unleash your inner daredevil when you embark on these “dangerous” deeds—we double-dog dare you!

Check out our blog to learn why a little healthy risk-taking is good for kids.

Human Wrecking Ball
During Museum Hours
Jump off a platform hanging onto a 30-foot-long rope, and then smack into a stack of stuff and send it flying!

Fling It!
Daily in July at 11:30 am
You can make stuff fly! All it takes is ingenuity and some simple machines. Then, watch out!

Handle with Care

Hammers and saws and drills, oh my! Yes, we’re talking power drills. We’ll show you how kids can play with grown-up tools safely!
