  • DuPage Children's Museum
    In 1987, Louise Beem and Dorothy Carpenter were early-childhood-education specialists. Based on their combined experience—gained from teaching preschool, founding the College of DuPage's early-childhood-education program, and being grandmothers—the two friends felt that traditional methods of teaching youngsters were less than optimal at the time. Their brainchild, the DuPage Children's Museum, began that same year. The pair designed the museum's colorful exhibits to incorporate interactive and open-ended elements, which they believed more closely matched the way kids learn and naturally process information, a discovery they say has now been corroborated by findings in neuroscience research. In that vein, the three-story museum engages young neurons with interactive art, math, and science-themed attractions. Giving little hands the chance to explore, the AWEsome Electricity exhibit bridges the gap between the electric-powered gadgets and lights families use every day to where all that nonbreakfast-based energy comes from. Kids learn how electricity gets from one place to another and what its basic units are while at play in the museum's signature hands-on spaces. Elsewhere, the Young Explorers exhibit is designed for children aged 2 and under, who develop math skills by learning concepts such as sorting and patterning and express their creativity by experimenting with color and light.

  • Naper Settlement
    In 1969, a group of history lovers saved the Civil War–era St. John's Episcopal Church from demolition, and in so doing gave birth to Naper Settlement, an outdoor history museum that preserves a slice of 19th-century life. Over the decades, more and more buildings have been restored and moved to the settlement grounds, building up a massive testament to times past and earning dozens of awards in the process. Size: 30 historic buildings spread across 12 acres Eye Catchers: the staff, who don costumes and take on personas from the 19th century Permanent Mainstay: Brushstrokes of the Past—3,500 sq. ft. of art, artifacts, photos, and other relics that chart Naperville's history Crown Jewel:Martin Mitchell Mansion, a 12-room celebration of 19th-century luxury and one of the settlement's original buildings Pro Tip: use Naper Settlement's app to explore the grounds and baffle those who've forgot what century they're in
