Children’s Museum of Oak Lawn

Do you have a curious child with lots of energy? Take them over to the Children’s Museum and let them explore and experiment to their heart’s content. Children can experiment with science at the water table, explore physics at the golf ball ramp, or just let their imaginations run wild.

Location: 5100 Museum Dr., Oak Lawn, IL

Luv 2 Play

Looking for a place to party in the Chicago area? Then Luv 2 Play could be the place for your child. The 30,000 square feet of interior play space is filled with places to run, jump, crawl, and slide while the small baby and toddler areas keep your little safe from rambunctious older kids, too.

Swallow Cliff Woods
