14-story tall tower with a 72-bell Carillon instrument inside. Climb to the top and see Naperville and beyond. On a clear day, see the Chicago Skyline. Concerts are performed by world-renowned carillonneurs spring-fall and concert-goers can enjoy the music from the lawns surrounding the tower. Also a site for weddings.

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 the bells play, I would describe it more...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!

The Carillon in downtown Naperville is a very recognizable landmark right on the Riverwalk and across from the quarry 'beach' pool.

The guide did a very nice job of explaining the Carillon to us. We really enjoyed the view of the surrounding area and took a lot of pictures.

To go inside and walk up the Millennium Carillon Moser Tower it cost only $3. It had very nice views to take pictures. Inside you need to just watch out for bird poop on staircase and seat. You get an up close look at bells...More

I love the Carillon. It's unusual. They actually play music with the bells in the tower...go online to see what time and days they play. Well worth it one time. Not something to do too much...however, there's a grassy knoll to sit on and it's...More

We had gone to Centennial Beach in Naperville and while you are sitting on the beach or in the water, you can see the Millennium Carillon on the other side of the Du Page River. The bells did ring at the time you would expect,...More

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.
