Chicago Children's Museum


While in Chicago we headed to the Navy Pier and spent a long afternoon at the Children's Museum.


When researching the trip I was happy to find that the museum offered four free admission tickets to active military and then after visiting the USO on the pier received free parking vouchers for the lot there, I hate paying for parking and this saved us $21. Something good to know when in Chicago.

The first exhibit we visited was "Unboxed" where the kids had an adventure in cardboard.


 EJ and Grandma made cut, punched, and colored cardboard into some neat artwork.


I got some inspiration of ways to use this always around material.


Then Grandpa imparted his engineering knowledge as he constructed a "castle" with the kids.


 CJ was especially fascinated with the nuts and screws.


Then there was fire safety.


The waterworks.

 

Miniature Museum.


 And the list of exhibits went on and on.


The kids were thoroughly tired at the end of the visit and fell fast asleep as soon as we returned to the car. We said goodbye to the Chicago skyline and headed out on our 11 hour drive back to PA.
