It's a nice enough structure that adds to the riverwalk memorial's ambiance. I'm not sure I'd go again to see the Carillon but I'll be back to the riverwalk.

This is a great place to go to during the summer. Every weekend night some composer is highlighted with a concert. This a normal free night for Naperville.

Though we didn't go inside, it is a pretty landmark for talking pictures if you are walking along the river walk and using covered bridges.

So it's not particularly beautiful and although the music is nice it's not especially grand, the joy of this attraction is going to the top of it! The view is stunning and well worth the efforts to get there. You can see neighboring suburbs on a clear day! Try to get up there for the 4th of July if you... More

I recommend calling first if you plan on going inside the tower. The first time we came there was a private party(August) second time we came there was misty rain. I believe that it was closed due to weather. Pokemon gym at structure. Most pokemon spawn in front of it between hill and cafe.

In the summer there are concerts twice a week. the setting is scenic and a great place to picnic during or before the concert. Easy to take children and plenty of room for little ones to run off their energy.

A structure that was funded by a group of Naperville residents, the Millennium Carillon is located in a park setting along the river walk. It is only open on weekends for tours, and you can walk to the top (or take an elevator halfway) and get some impressive views of the area and even the Chicago skyline. If you do... More

Sadly, we were unable to access the Carillon because it's only open on weekends. BE ADVISED!!!! We saw it only from the ground, and heard it a few times. Nice sound. A large imposing structure, unusual design in a park setting. Really can't rate it better or worse, because nothing was open on a Thursday.
