Do Big Top Stunts: Circus Zirkus

Welcome ladies, gentlemen and children of all ages to the greatest little show on earth! This interactive circus exhibition is perfect for the mini Ringling brothers in your life. There are several fantastic stations where children can pretend they are flying high on the trapeze, spinning inside a giant hoop and balancing on the tightrope. What circus would be complete without a dress-up extravaganza? There are also light, sound and concession stations for those who are more comfortable behind the scenes.

Open through July 31, Mon.-Wed. & Fri.-Sun. 10 a.m.-5p.m. & Thurs. 10 a.m.-8p.m. Included in museum general admission ($14/children; $14/children; free for children under 1). Chicago Children’s Museum, 700 E. Grand Ave., Navy Pier (312-527-1000 or chicagochildrensmuseum.org).
