Discounts/​Free Days - Chicago Children's Museum (and Navy Pier)

Chicago Public Library offers Kids Museum Passports, which you can check out and bring to the museum for free admission for a family of 4. If you have a CPL card, check out availability at: Kids Museum Passport - Chicago Children's Museum

Free museum admissions are significantly limited at the time of reopening. Veterans and active duty military receive free admission (ID required). Advance reservations are not required.

Families that qualify for state food assistance may receive free admission for up to 6 people, which must include at least one adult and at least one child aged 15 years or younger. Reservations are required, and can be made at this page, by clicking the "Museums for All" button.

If you're a member of another children's museum, you may be able to get half off through the reciprocal membership program. Check your member card for an ACM reciprocal program logo or your museum's webpage for more information. (You can also go to and search for your museum being sure to look for the reciprocal program 'R' logo, but some museums have lower level memberships that do not include the reciprocal program.)
