About Busy Brains Children's Museum

Busy Brains Children's Museum encourages the joy of learning and discovery in all children, with interactive exhibits and enlightening programs in the arts, sciences, and humanities.
Busy Brains Children’s Museum is a non-profit corporation founded in November, 2003 by Kathy Goers and Alison Price. The organization became incorporated in the State of Illinois in April, 2004, and earned tax exempt 501(c) 3 status in December of 2004.
In 2013, the museum secured a 14,000 square foot building, a former car dealership, in downtown Lake Villa. The museum has hired a well-know architect of children's museum, Bill Greaves of Architects in Design who will work with a local architect, Korte Architecture, to transform, the building into a state-of-the art children's museum.

Initially, 60% of the available space will be used to house exhibits. The remaining space will be divided appropriately, allowing for a gift shop, restrooms, eating area, private rooms for programs, classes and rentals, office space, storage space and a small workshop.
