    The Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower is a unique, 14-story structure with a 72-bell musical instrument. It was built as a commemorative to the Naperville community to herald the New Millennium. It is referred to as a Grand Carillon because its bells span a full six octaves; it is one of only four Grand Carillons in the world.

    The tower itself and adjacent Visitor Center opened to the public for tours in 2007.

    The Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower is located at 443 Aurora Avenue, near Rotary Hill in Naperville, Illinois.
