What You'll Get
Teaching children is extremely important, as their generation will have to unlock the secret of clean energy after trees finally get the right to vote. Prep for the future with this Groupon.
$60 for One Year of Admission for Up To Six People ($125 Value)
Three floors of exploration and education entertain young and old alike with hands-on exhibits, experiments, and crafts. Tree-house trails provide youngsters—particularly those 5 and younger—with the opportunity to cross a flowing river in a canoe or frolic beneath a mountain waterfall. In the brand new Circus Zirkus exhibit, kids don clown and acrobat costumes as they learn to spin plates and tumble like real circus performers. Throughout June, Mad Science gives aspiring chemists and engineers the chance to craft a pile of goo, build their own stomp rocket, and get acquainted with The Launchinator, the museum's most powerful catapult. The Dinosaur Expedition allows tykes to re-create a dig where paleontologist Paul Sereno discovered the bones of a new dinosaur. Kraft Artabounds Studio, meanwhile, unleashes youthful creativity with stations devoted to painting, sewing, sketching, and printing. In July, kids can shimmy and shake Friday and Saturday nights away at summer dance parties, and starting August 28, explore the world of cardboard with Unboxed. Many exhibits also feature infant-specific areas.

About Chicago Children's Museum
The word "museum" may suggest a world behind glass—except at Chicago Children's Museum, where pint-sized visitors freely touch and tinker, build and dismantle, and experiment and explore in an array of interactive exhibits. Located on Navy Pier, CCM is one of the city's top cultural attractions and among the most visited children's museums in the country.
Chicago Children's Museum invites guests to participate in a staged paleontological dig, create art projects, tinker in a workshop, man a fire station, dam up a river, and take the driver's seat in a kid-sized CTA bus. At its famed Skyline exhibit, visitors can explore the physics that hold up Chicago's mighty skyscrapers and learn the history of how architects first decided to mine steel from the mighty armpits of Atlas.
As of fall 2017, Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit is the museum's newest addition. Organized in collaboration with the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, this interactive exhibit brings the pages of Eric Carle's books to life, letting little ones compose music with the Very Quiet Cricket and spin a web with the Very Busy Spider, among other activities.
