Third Thursdays for Special Needs Children at DuPage Children’s Museum

January 26th, 2017

Museum provides accommodations for visitors with accessibility needs.

The DuPage Children’s Museum designates the third Thursday of each month as a time for families of children with special needs (e.g., mobility, visual impairments and autism spectrum) to enjoy the museum. Accommodations are made so all children can participate in general programs, and resources are available to help visitors structure their visit.

Reduced membership/daily admission for all families with an Illinois Medicaid card is as follows: $2 daily admission per person with your Medicaid card (proof of All Kids/Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services insurance) or $10 for a family membership for a year.

All siblings are invited to attend special needs nights. Caregivers, such as nurses or therapists, are admitted free with an employee ID.

Upcoming special needs nights are Feb. 16, March 16 and April 20.
