Parking is available in a number of city lots nearby and on city streets as well. The carillon is a short distance from any point along the Riverwalk.

May 4-October 27
Moser Tower is an open-air structure, and as such, visits can be impacted by weather. The Naperville Park District may cancel tours to the Tower if weather conditions pose any safety hazard to visitors and staff. Please consider this when planning your trip to the tower. Contact the Park District on the day of your visit if you have any doubts about the weather's impact on tours.
Numerous groups, like boy and girl scout troops, have enjoyed the spectacular view from atop the Tower. Yours can too!
To schedule Millennium Carillon tours for groups of 10 or more, please contact the Naperville Park District at (630) 848-3540 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Visitor Center is closed from October to May.
A brand new visitor center stands beside the tower to showcase the tower and carillon.
From within the transformed Netzley House, directly adjacent to the tower on its west side, visitors embark on tours of the tower and carillon, and get to climb the steps that so many of us have waited so long to do.
The center houses exhibits and the practice Clavier, and visitors can hear lectures and enjoy interactive exhibits.
