The newly remodeled Children's Neighborhood Museum at 814 Hart Road in Round Lake has officially re-opened.
Local families attended a special free re-opening event on Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at the museum, which is aimed at young children, from crawlers to 6 years old, to explore. 
The museum is a tot-sized replica of a town built especially for kids. A place where they can drive a car to the market, gas up at the local gas station, be a doctor, lead a classroom and explore in our STEAM area!
The Children's Neighborhood Museum is a place where children ages 1-6 practice various roles in a community, challenging themselves to explore, imagine and create, exercising both mind and body. It also has a crawler zone for those with siblings under 1.
Admission to the museum costs:

  • 0-6 years $5 resident/$7 non-resident per person per session
  • 18 and up, $2 resident /$3 non-resident per person per session

One free adult entrance is provided per paid child entrance. Memberships at the museum cost $10 resident/$14 non-resident per month per child. 
Wednesdays are a FREE day at the Children's Neighborhood Museum, with hours from 12:30-2:30 pm
Entry is first-come, first-serve at the museum. Be advised that there is a guest capacity to ensure fun and safety for all.
The Children's Neighborhood Museum is sponsored by NorthShore University HealthSystem.
