Sonnets Academy is pleased to introduce Chicago Children’s Museum at Navy Pier as our proud community partner. Sonnets Academy directors and teachers believe that promoting a strong community-school connection for its families allows students to build upon and realize the real-world applications of what they learn in the classroom. The Chicago Children’s Museum experience is a perfect complement to our students’ school experience.


All Sonnets Academy families receive an annual membership to the museum. 
The membership includes unlimited admission for up to four people and five guest passes to share with family and friends. Sonnets Academy and Chicago Children’s Museum offers members-only events and discounts to family-friendly activities throughout the year, too.
