Exploritorium

Entertainment Centers

Skokie's imagination playground. The Exploritorium provides an indoor playground environment with activities for toddlers and preschool age children.

Named “Chicagoland’s Best Rainy Day Activity Site” by Chicago Magazine, the Exploritorium is much more than an indoor playground. It is a place where children and adults can come and explore together through interactive play. Make-believe in our costumed dress-up area, run your fingers through our water play area, make music, play with trains, and experience new heights in the two-and-a-half story maze of tubes and tunnels.
