Family Days at Chicago Museums and Other Attractions

Looking for a fun way to spend a day with the kids? Children’s days are the best days to enjoy some of the educational centers or places of entertainment in our area.

These events usually run on a schedule and often feature a lower entry fee for children or special events aimed at young people.

Whether it’s an educational, recreational, or family-friendly opportunity, take part in the activities these community places have to offer during these upcoming Children’s Day events.

The planetarium stays open late on Wednesdays so that local working parents can bring their children to experience the universe. Drop by between 4pm and 10pm and enjoy!
