Museum Happenings – Play into Spring!

Are you starting to think about spring break? Maybe you are way ahead and already thinking summer? At DCM children can engage in playful learning experiences that span and support development from birth to 10 years, build on curriculum, and encourage a pattern of lifelong learning.

No matter if you are preschool age, 10 years, or somewhere in between, DCM certainly has something for you! Come one, come all, to the DuPage Children’s Museum where great classes, activities and performances are always happening!

Family Fun Friday Nights

The FUN is surely emphasized in our Family Fun Friday Nights. Join us for performances by North Central College’s Red Bike Performance Company and Naperville Park District’s Elan Dance Company. The Treasured Stories of Eric Carle will be presented by the Mermaid Theatre Company of Nova Scotia. Also coming up in March, join us for an energy exploration family science night, Farming for Fuels.

Spring Break Camps

Spring brings new adventures in learning and fun. At the museum, we will literally build and play. DuPage Children’s Museum is happy to welcome Play-Well TEKnologies. During this engineering driven camp, children will have access to over 100,000 pieces of LEGO! They will have the opportunity to build what they have dreamed of with the support of an experienced Play-Well engineering instructor to guide them. Classes include Pre-Engineering with LEGO or Engineering FUNdamentals.

Summer Camps and Activities

This summer we will engage 3-5 year old children with 8 different weekly themes. Set-up your summer play dates with us. We will begin the summer with Art Explorers and Let’s Pretend, continue with Water & Bubbles, Color, Light & Shadow, Great Big & Tiny, Playing with Math, Make it Move, and will end with Let’s Build.

The summer brings more Engineering Camps and Summer Mini-Camps too! Enjoy Cool Chemistry, Up, Up & Away and Robots, Robots Everywhere!

This spring break and summer— in fact, anytime -- consider a playful learning “get away” at the Museum!
