Things to Do with Kids: Located within Navy Pier, the Chicago Children's Museum serves children from toddlers to fifth grade and features 14 permanent exhibits, many of which are interactive. The Kovler Family Climbing Schnooer is especially fun and unless your kid is afraid of heights, you may be stuck there all day. The Dinosaur Expedition lets kids dig without getting dirty and be prepared because there is a good likelihood they'll get a bit wet in the WaterWays exhibit. Children under one are always free and guests ages 15 and under enjoy free admission all day on the first Sunday of every month and on Thursday evenings from 5-8pm.
