About Us

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 location in Lake Villa is currently under construction.

Busy Brains plans to have seven to eight exhibit galleries, and space for a traveling exhibit. Focus groups of teachers, parents, children, and businesses have been conducted to help in the exhibit decision making process. Exhibits will be completely interactive, and focus on topics of interest to Lake County families and visitors. Traveling exhibits have visited preschools, elementary schools, and a variety of family events. For more information call 224-381-0138.

Programs will be offered to extend the visitor experience. Professionals within the community, in addition to trained staff, will lead programs in desired areas.

Busy Brains is currently looking for enthusiastic volunteers to aid in our development. Please call 224-381-1239 for more information.
