  • First let me say this structure looks very out of place on this scenic and lovely Riverwalk. Too tall and architecturally UGLY!! Then when one walks up into it, you have to dodge the bird poop. When t...  more »
  • Didn't immediately realize that this was a bell tower. It didn't ring while we were there, but the design is intriguing and the park surrounding the tower is just amazing. Worth a second trip!  more »
  • The Carillon in downtown Naperville is a very recognizable landmark right on the Riverwalk and across from the quarry 'beach' pool.  more »

  • Noisy and ugly ... and a total waste of $$$ ... the people who authorize taxpayer dollars for this monstrosity should be jailed for misuse of public funds... and they should be required to pay back to the taxpayers any $$$ they authorized. If these elected officials wanted this piece of concrete junk, they should have paid for it themselves.
  • While this is officially supposed to be called the "Moser Tower and Millennium Carillon," everyone just calls it the Millennium Carillon. For $3 during the summer, you can take the tour, climbing the 253 steps to the top to see the Carillon and check out the views of Rotary Hill and Naperville. It is amazing to watch the carillon being played. See the photos. Beautiful place. Inexpensive. Wonderful views.
  • One of the best views for miles. Definitely bring good walking shoes for the stairs. Walking up it is an exercise for sure, but we'll worth it for the view!
  • Beautiful view from up. It is higher than The Statue of Liberty. Every full hour you can hear music that various sizes of bells are making.
  • The bells have to be heard playing to understand their true beauty
