Hi, cardholders! Summer is the perfect season to visit the amazing DuPage Children's Museum, where kids can flex their brain muscles, hone their fine motor skills, and -- of course -- have fun!

Located in Naperville, Illinois, the DuPage Children's Museum uses science and art to stimulate children's creativity and problem-solving skills. Here are just a few of the great exhibits families can visit:

- Play, build, and create with real wood and real tools at The Moser Construction House!

- Generate energy with a big waterwheel, create a current with circuits and conductors, and navigate a wind tunnel at AWEsome Energy!

Work together to build a pyramid at Pyramid Bench!

There are so many cool things kids can do at the DuPage Children's Museum, all of which are designed to develop specific skills in children of all ages.
