“We are overjoyed to be receiving USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Award as one of the top 10 children’s museums in the nation.” said Jennifer Farrington, President and CEO of Chicago Children’s Museum. “Our success is in large part due to our incredible team and generous donors, however we want to give a very special thank you to the millions of children that have walked through our doors and enjoyed our exhibits over the past four decades. We appreciate the opportunity we’re given to continue to serve children and families visiting the museum from all over the world year-round, and could not be more grateful for this incredible recognition.”
