    Something for everyone!

    We purchased the CityPass to skip the line, although there wasn't really one. The Museum of Science and Industry is huge and offers plenty to see and do. The U-505 exhibit was the highlight for us. Ta...

    Disappointing

    A lot of the exhibits were shut down or limited due to Covid-19. This is a museum for children. I went with another adult so it was not very engaging. Children would love it!!!

    For adults

    While supposed to be informative for kids, adults will find it a great way to spend the day as well. Interactive parts adds a 3rd dimension to the experience. More to see and do than 1 might think. ...

Additional Information

Introduction

Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry is the biggest science historical center in the Western side of the equator, lodging tremendous displays that let guests find out about a scope of points by encountering them firsthand. Jump on the Pioneer Zephyr, the main diesel-controlled stainless-steel train; slide into a completely reproduced mine pole to figure out how a sump pump functions; and get very close with monstrous homestead machines. For a more active approach, the Live Science Experiences carry guests into the classroom by taking care of science issues in a public domain. Admirers of science and innovation should discover this the feature of any Chicago trip.
