A Fun Family NYE at DuPage Children’s Museum

Ring in the New Year with a countdown to Noon celebration at Fun Family NYE 2018! Families can spend time together exploring the Museum’s hands-on exhibits, taking part in special activities, listening to live music, creating lasting memories, and more!

This annual year-end celebration, now in its 17th year, has become a holiday tradition for families and is an important fundraiser for the Museum.

This year, Fun Family NYE is excited to present Duke Otherwise as the live entertainment! Duke Otherwise is a playful wordsmith, a spirited performer, a skilled guitarist and captivating tap-dancer. He sings his hilarious and imaginative songs that ALL ages will delight in together.
