Celebrate the New Year with Kohl Children’s Museum

Kohl Children’s Museum provides a much warmer and more family-friendly version of Times Square with its New Year’s Eve “midnight” celebrations at 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Monday, December 31 at the Museum’s Glenview location at 2100 Patriot Boulevard. The Museum is breaking out all the decorations to kick off 2019 in spectacular fashion, decorating an entire wing for a full Times Square experience, from the confetti to a photo booth and music – all of it designed specifically for kids.

A musical performance from Wendy & DB highlights the morning session, as the duo bring their special brand of interactive children’s music to Kohl Children’s Museum. They’ll cede the stage to a kid-friendly DJ in the afternoon, as kids will have plenty of opportunities to dance and celebrate the New Year with their friends throughout the day, including a countdown and confetti drop at the stroke of “midnight.”

The plethora of activities at Kohl Children’s Museum are fun for the whole family and certainly beat Times Square’s “stand around and be cold” alternative. From party hat-making to a family-sized photo booth with photos printed “while you wait,” to frame decorating for those special shots, the possibilities are endless. Partiers are also welcome to explore the entire museum.

Tickets purchased after December 21 will be $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased online at: www.kcmgc.org/special-events/nye.
