This is the first time we have discovered a childrens play area and my daughter was delighted. It is only a short walk from terminal 2, there is plenty there to keep them entertained for at least an hour. I would have rated this as...More

Great place to spend a half hour; running around, jumping and exploring. The exhibit needs some repairs and not all the features work; but kids don't mind it and have a blast. There is a bench for mom and dad to watch the kids running...More

Visited this for about an hour. It is appears best for children maybe 7 or younger but my 9 year old had a good time and most important, stayed busy and off the tablet.

This is probably the best idea ever for an airport. You have young children that don't like to be restricted in movement so you tire them out by having them play in the children's museum for an hour or two before your flight. Then they're...More

I didn't know the exhibit existed until my 1 year old son and I literally ran into it during a 2 hour layover. It was such a welcome sight and he had a blast. I was able to relax for the first time since starting...More

This play area was truly a lifesaver during our two-hour layover at O'Hare. We had just enough time for us to find the place, let our two-year-old play for about an hour, and get to our next departure gate. We were able to keep her...More

Let me paint a picture for you. I haven't set foot in this airport in roughly 16 years. I'm currently 18. I don't remember much of being 2, but for some strange reason, I remember this like it was yesterday. I don't know why I...More

Great place to let the kids play while you wait. Only drawback is that no food or drink is allowed inside.

This was okay if you have the extra time its something to help you do with your kids that have a long layover. This place is big so make sure you have time to go and return to your gate.

Lots of fun airport related hands on exhibits good for younger tots. Fly a plane, gas it up, go to the tower or just relax on the painted benches. Be warned- no food or drink. Plenty of adult seating
