Named Chicagoland's "Top Rainy Day Destination" by the Chicago Tribune, the Exploritorium is a place where children and adults visit to explore together through interactive play.

Make-believe in our costumed dress-up area; run your fingers through our water play area; climb a wall, play with trains, and experience new heights in our two-and-a half-story tubes and tunnels.

Visit us at exploritorium.org for all facility information.
