Visiting Chicago Children’s Museum is always fun… but coming to a private party after hours is even more fun!

The evening will include:

  • Dance party with the DJ
  • Programming for ages 0 to 10, including a maker-space for older children
  • A kid-friendly dinner
  • $5 beer and wine
  • Snow Globe party and snowball toss
  • Winter-themed crafts
  • A raffle
  • Your favorite exhibits - including our returning favorite exhibit, Zoom Room

Proceeds from Family Snow Ball raise vital funds for the museum’s innovative exhibits, educationally-charged programming, mission-driven free field trips, and community inclusion initiatives – which welcome almost 140,000 people from underserved neighborhoods every year.
