Carillon Tours set to return July 7

After more than two years, Naperville’s Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower will re-open for tours starting on July 7.

Andrea Coates, Director of Recreation and Facilities for the Naperville Park District, announced the news at Thursday night’s Naperville Park Board Meeting. The Carillon has been closed since the spring of 2021 due to the construction and renovation of Moser Tower.

During Carillon tours, visitors can climb 253 steps (16 stories) to the top of the structure. All tours are guided and cost $3 for anyone ages 5 and older. More information can be found on the Naperville Park District Website.
