The Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago) in Chicago was rebuilt from the old site of the Palace of Art built at the Chicago Brother Remb Memorial Expo in 1893. This Museum introduces some common knowledge of natural science and the development history of industrial technology. It covers many disciplines such as earth, biology, climate and transportation, agricultural machinery and so on. It has more than 2000 exhibition booths. It is said to be the largest science museum in the western hemisphere. Almost every showroom has instruments or experiments for visitors to do. Here you can see the process of simulating various natural phenomena; you can visit the only German submarine captured in World War II - U-505 submarine; you can feel the operation of the coal mine; you can also witness the process of chicken shell breaking in the chicken hatchery. Participation and interaction are the characteristics of this museum, adults and children have harvest. All major museums in Chicago buy tickets, but they often have free opening hours (which can be checked on the museum's official website). There are restaurants in the museum (American fast food), but it's more expensive than outside. The museum is not far from the University of Chicago. It's a short distance from downtown. If you are not self-driving, you can choose the suburban train ME line to get off at 55th - 56th - 57th St. Metra Station and walk for about 10 minutes.
It has to be said that the location of the Museum of Science and Industry is somewhat biased compared with other popular scenic spots. It takes more than half an hour to get there by bus from Loop, and it takes longer if there is a traffic jam. But the exhibits are worth the time spent on the road. It is suggested that the tour time should be about 2 hours. It's very suitable for parent-child travel. There are many small projects that can be experienced. It's more interesting. Children can learn a lot of knowledge about science and industry. I was impressed by electrostatic exhibits, maze mirrors and so on. The ticket included a film, the one chosen by the Great White Shark. It's OK. The screen is a large ball screen, which makes people feel immersed. Museum of Science and Industry is still worth recommending.
Although the museum charges a high fee. But it's really a good place for children, including adults, to learn about science. We visited a robot exhibition sponsored by Google. Through interactive participation, we can understand the formation of tornadoes, experience the strong characteristics of hurricanes, make waves and lightning by ourselves. Because English is too poor to support my interaction, many projects are confused and don't know what's going on. There are also special projects that need to be paid separately, such as exploring underground to experience coal mining, boarding German World War II submarines and whaling boats. The museum includes industry, natural phenomena of the earth, biological nature, flight aviation, human mystery and so on. It's as popular as the Washington Space Museum. There are American children everywhere who enjoy themselves. The technologically powerful United States has done a really good job in science popularization. Our country needs to learn too much. American parents are so keen to take their children to museums, I also lament once and again.
The Chicago Museum of Science and Industry is a large museum with two treasures. One is the real body of Apollo 8, the first American man to land on the moon, and the other is the real body of the powerful German submarine U-505 killed by the US Air Force during World War II. The museum can also experience the scene of that year.
The Museum of Science and Industry is a very famous military and Science Museum in Chicago. It's suitable for bringing children together. Besides the University of Chicago, it's the most worthwhile Museum attraction in the south of the city. It's very large and informative. It's not enough to play for four hours. I only visited the mini circus, submarines, space exploration and future energy. I feel half of it. Number of exhibition halls did not go, everywhere is fun, mood hig.
I ran the Chicago Marathon this year and went to the Museum of Science and Nature by the way. It's worth visiting. I didn't see anything when I was a child. It's clear today. The vast space has the record of the first American landing on the moon and the German submarine captured by the United States. It's worth visiting and seeing.
