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.
Special thanks to Mary Ware for her hard work and commitment to the mission of the Children’s Hands-On Museum of Northwest Illinois. Thank you to Culver’s of Freeport for their recognition of the work of CHOM and sponsoring this program each month to say thank you to our volunteers!
If you've never visited CHOM or just wondering what we're about, come out on Saturday, August 17 and enjoy free entry into the museum. Before you leave, consider an annual family membership. Donations are always welcome! We are open 10 AM - 2 PM.
