“We are thrilled to be hosting such a fun and interactive after-hours experience here at the Museum this May,” said Emilie Neumeier, Chicago Children’s Museum Associates Board Member and Event Co-Chair. “Camp Hide N Seek will offer a grown-up view into the incredible exhibits our Museum presents to children and how vital they are for the wellbeing, growth and inspiration of all children that walk through our doors. The evening will be a night to remember and we welcome one and all to get together with a group of friends and come play in the Museum!”
