The mission of the Children’s Hands-On Museum of Northwest Illinois is to Inspire all children and families to learn, explore, and create through interactive experiences.
The Children’s Hands-On Museum of Northwest Illinois has joined Museums for All, a signature access program to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits.
Come in & Explore!
Get away from the gadgets and have some real hands-on fun together exploring our interactive exhibits. And it’s okay for grown-ups to play too.
Bring the kids to CHOM during our regular hours between November 21 and November 24. Each child will be provided all the supplies needed to make a Christmas tree ornament to be placed on the CHOM Christmas Tree for the FHN Festival of Trees. If you have questions...
Check out CHOM for Halloween! Bring the kids in costume (or not!) and have some fund with the scavenger hunt and pick up some treats before it’s time to go home! Open 2 – 6 PM (normal hours!) on Thursday. Click the link for more information. Standard admission fees apply for non-members.
The Children’s Hands-On Museum of Northwest Illinois (CHOM) appoints Sarah Flashing as the museum’s new executive director.
