The Chicago Children's Museum signed a 90-year lease to stay at Navy Pier.

According to a release, the lease allows the museum to expand from its current 57,000-square feet of space to 84,000-square feet.

The lease also puts to rest a controversial plan to move the Chicago Children's Museum, to Grant Park.
