An Adventure in Learning

For more than 30 years, the DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM) has been inspiring families to laugh, learn and love spending time together. Through exhibits, programs and special events, every experience is designed to help children develop a strong foundation of creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving skills and confidence.

Have fun and learn while playing in the many exhibit neighborhoods. AWEsome Energy provides three immersive experiences in this exhibit. Grab an apron and splash around in AWEsome Water, peddle on a bike to light up a tower in AWEsome Electricity, and stand in the wind tunnel to experience the power of air in AWEsome Air. Get creative in Creativity Connections while exploring light, shadows and textures. Roll, bounce, slide, and spin objects while discovering energy of motion and basic physics. For the “under two’s,” the youngest visitors can exercise their minds and bodies in Young Explorers. And calling all artists! Work with materials, learn about process and create some art that you can take home in The Studio.

From field trips to learning labs, scout outings to storytime, birthday parties with bubble machines, DCM provides many opportunities for the community to enjoy.

Worked-up an appetite while exploring the Museum? Check out Bean Sprouts®, a hip and healthy café offering a variety of choices for the family including picky eaters and anyone with allergies or dietary challenges. 

Don’t leave the Museum without stopping in the Explorer Store, offering a wide assortment of educational, playful items including books, puzzles, toys and more. 

DCM is conveniently located in downtown Naperville. Make a day of it and hop on the Metra BSNF train that brings visitors directly to the Museum, just a few steps to its big red front doors. Plan a visit today! Visit
