Mission Statement

Wonder Works provides a safe, fun and educational learning environment intended to strenghten the social, emotional and intellectual development of children through creative exploration and intergenerational play.


With six permanent experience zones and numerous special programs and classes, Wonder Works provides children with a wide array of play experiences based on proven early childhood education standards.

Measuring 6400 square feet, the museum's size and accessible experience zones are designed for use by children from birth to eight years of age.

It's within easy reach of public transportation and close to several major expressways, providing quick and easy access to families and groups from Chicago and surrounding suburbs. Special care has been taken to make Wonder Works a favorite destination for children with special needs.

Every year, the museum welcomes more than 50,000 visitors, inlcuding about 700 member families and well over 4,000 children who come to visit the museum on school-sponsored field trips.

A very nice group of people work for this organization and the work that I did for them was relatively simple. I plan to work with them again on 9/7 and 9/8 and am looking forward to it!
