COVID-19 Guidelines for the Exploritorium
Everyone ages 2 and above must wear a mask in the Exploritorium.

Named Chicagoland's "Top rainy-day destination” by the Chicago Tribune, the Exploritorium is much more than an indoor playground. The Exploritorium is a place where children and adults can come and explore together through interactive play. Make-believe in our costumed dress-up area; run your fingers through our water play area; climb a wall, play with trains, experience new heights in our two-and-a half-story tubes and tunnels, and much more.
