DCM Reopening to the Public
The DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM) in Naperville is set to reopen its doors to the general public on Saturday, June 5. DCM will reopen with a reduced capacity and pre-registered admission. Many fan-favorite exhibits and the museum’s art room are ready to be used again by community members. But for now, the popular AWEsome water exhibit will remain closed, though it should reopen in the coming months. For about three months the museum has been offering private play time bookings, but with COVID-19 numbers declining and vaccinations rising, the museum says it is now ready for a fuller reopen.
