Good Show Transportation Gallery

DuPage Children's Museum

The gallery of children's art, age range Kindergarten through Grade five, changes three times a year. The focus for May 2009, gallery of art work will be trains. Children at each grade level will see art work and posters of trains showing the changes through the last 100 years. Children will create art work depicting trains which will be displayed in the gallery. The museum is directly adjacent to the railroad tracks and Naperville train station and many families use the train to access the museum so this is of particular interest to many of our patrons.

Exhibit : Monday, September 1, 2008 to Sunday, September 13, 2009

Wheel Works of Art

DuPage Children's Museum

This interactive Art Gallery will capitalize on children's love of wheels, trains, bikes, cars and favorite toys that have wheels. DCM wants children to connect with the creative side of familiar wheels and then build on that knowledge to connect to the real world and to give children the opportunities to explore and think creatively about transportation. This current year long exhibit allows children to see different forms of transportation through paintings, sculpture, toys and hands on exploration. [MORE]
