The Dupage Children’s Museum is one of our favorite places to spend a morning. There is a lot to do that will keep young explorers interested. But, if you have preschool aged kiddos, you’re going to want to plan a trip to the Children’s Museum soon because Daniel Tiger’s world has moved into the top floor of the Museum.
The exhibit itself isn’t huge but it really is the perfect size for the preschool scene.
I love seeing just how much work was done to link the show directly to the exhibit. Each little section can be linked right to one of the episodes. (You’ll see the songs that are used in the episodes throughout each section. And parents, be sure to use those to your advantage when your kiddo starts forgetting what they need to be doing.)
Fans of the show will recognize the characters throughout the exhibit.
And there are many opportunities for dramatic play and chances for kids to really dive into their favorite episodes.
One of the best parts of this exhibit coming to town is that there is an opportunity for a meet-n-greet with Daniel! My girls were both very excited to meet Daniel. However, you might need to prepare your preschooler with the knowledge that Daniel is huge!
If you think that your kiddo would be interested in a meet-n-greet with Daniel, you will need to register in advance. There is not an extra fee for the meet-n-greet but there are only select times/days that Daniel is at the museum. I purchased my museum tickets and reserved our meet-n-greet date online. It’s super easy and then you don’t have to worry about missing out on the meet-n-greet.
Be aware, parking can be tricky at the museum. The last time we went, the lot was absolutely full! Thankfully, there is street parking available in the near vicinity. Pick up a parking map outside of the museum to find out where you’ll find paid parking and/or street parking.
Daniel Tiger is only at the Dupage Children’s Museum for a few more weeks so check out the dates and sign up for your meet-n-greet!
