We are a place that provides experiences and memories to build a foundation for a lifetime of learning.
Make a change in the lives of over 350,000 individuals annually! By volunteering at Kohl Children's Museum of Greater Chicago, you can help children learn through play, exploration, and discovery. Since 1985, Kohl Children's Museum, a not for profit, educational facility has been dedicated to "hands-on" learning and fostering innovative ways to inspire intellectual growth. We are one of the few museums in the country that has always focused on early childhood learning - the fundamental, critically important learning that occurs from birth to age 8. Kohl Children's Museum's growth has been magnified partly due to all the time our dedicated volunteers have generously contributed over the years. With an organization that operates 7 days a week in a facility that is over 46,700 square feet, there are many ways that you can step in to make a difference in thousands of young children's lives!
