Plus Parking is an option added to a Chicago Children’s Museum membership. With a Plus Parking membership, CCM members can park at Navy Pier garages for FREE with every museum visit with children.
Plus Parking Membership Information and Agreement
CCM’s Plus Parking benefit is specifically for parking during visits to Chicago Children's Museum with your children. It is not designed to accommodate parking independently of museum use.
The Parking Plus benefit is not available to CCM members Memorial Day weekend (Friday, May 24-Monday, May 27), the Fourth of July holiday (Thursday, July 4-Sunday, July 7), and Labor Day weekend (Friday, August 30-Monday, September 2). During the blackout periods members are eligible for a 20% off validation to the regular Navy Pier parking daily rate.
Plus Parking Membership provides a maximum of 1 free parking validation coupon per membership per day, subject to garage availability. The parking validation coupon cannot be combined with any other parking offer, validation, or valet rate. Free parking validation is good ONLY for parking at the Navy Pier garage (600 E. Grand Avenue).
Parking validation coupons are issued ONLY during the museum’s operating hours at the Membership Desk. The CCM Gift Shop cannot issue Navy Pier parking validation coupons.
The Plus Parking benefit is non-refundable. In addition, any parking fees paid in the Navy Pier garage or at other garages are non-refundable.
The Navy Pier garage is first-come, first-served. Parking at another garage is at the member’s expense. There are no reserved spots for CCM members. On busy days (e.g., holidays, summer weekends, special events), the Navy Pier garage may fill up and temporarily close. On those occasions, Plus Parking level members must either wait until Navy Pier security reopens the garage or park elsewhere at their own expense. Members are advised to arrive early on busy days and check the Navy Pier website for special events that may impact parking.
Plus Parking level members must show a photo ID each time they visit the museum. Membership benefits are not transferable. Caregiver names must be pre-designated and included on the membership. Parking validation coupons are only available to Plus Parking members, and the member or designated caregiver must be present with children to receive the parking validation coupon.
Plus Parking level members must present a same-day Navy Pier parking ticket at CCM’s Membership Desk to receive a parking-validation coupon. The Navy Pier parking-validation coupon must be redeemed on the date received. Do not pay for parking in advance.
CCM’s Plus Parking membership offer is NOT available to Navy Pier employees, MPEA employees officed at Navy Pier, Navy Pier vendors, or employees of Navy Pier merchants or tenants.
