While the Chicago Children's museum isn't as extensive as the DuPage Children's Museum in nearby Naperville, it is a fun choice on a bad-weather day. There is a huge water-play area (bring extra clothes) and a very fun hands- on building area where kids can build their own chairs, tables or other structures.
