Educational, fun, and inside! Described on the park district site as follows “Named Chicagoland’s “Best Rainy Day Activity Site” by Chicago Magazine, theExploritorium 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; make music, climb a wall, play with trains, experience new heights in our two-and-a half-story tubes and tunnels, and much more.”

Skokie Exploritorium – Skokie IL $3 for residents $5 for non residents
