  • My father is a native Chicagoan who has always raved about this place, so I was excited to finally get to visit it. By all rights it SHOULD be an awesome museum, it boasts some amazing exhibits, but pretty much everything you would want to see costs an extra ticket fee ON TOP of what you pay just to walk in the door. Tour inside the U-Boat? $12. The Coal Mine? $12. Mirror maze? Lego exhibit? Flight simulators? There's a fee for each. To see the best exhibits this museum offers an individual could spend nearly $100, and it makes my head spin trying to imagine what it would cost a family. Now there's some cool stuff on the floor and in ancillary exhibits that anyone can enjoy, but it is irksome and disheartening to constantly approach an interesting-sounding exhibit entrance only to see one's path blocked by yet ANOTHER ticket booth. The Museum, of Science and Industry clearly has a lot to offer, but they would do better to raise the entrance price a bit and stop the panhandling. Under current circumstances I would not recommend this museum very highly to anyone, especially when Chicago has so many other fine institutions where your entrance fee entitles you to see almost anything you want.

  • This is by far our favorite museum in the Chicagoland area! However, you should know that it's expensive. For example, our family of four (2A, 2C) spent over $100 just for admission, two additional exhibits, and parking (we packed our own lunch and didn't buy souvenirs). Because of the cost, we always plan to spend several hours here whenever we visit. My young kids LOVE it! The older one is starting to learn a few things and the younger one enjoys the cause and effect when he's pressing all the buttons, knobs, levers, etc. This is an incredibly interactive museum - super fun. We enjoyed the two $$ exhibits we chose (Brick-by-Brick and Robot Revolution). We also really like Number in Nature: A Mirror Maze and Idea Factory. Both of these are free, but they're times exhibits, meaning you have to get a ticket for a specific time to enter - the tickets are only available at the kiosk in front of each area. They also have staff all throughout the museum doing fun hands-on things with/for kids. The cost can be a lot to swallow, but it's so interactive that we go once or twice a year. One piece of advice - take a pic of the level you're on in the parking garage before getting on the elevator.

  • Incredible, there are so many interactive exhibits and facilities. Be prepared to spend a little however, there are many tours and gifts around. It would definitely take mire than a day to learn from all the exhibits. And some are often changed. I enjoyed my visit and would go again

  • They will charge you for everything here. Parking is crazy, there's a basic admission fee, and then an extra charge for EACH special exhibit. That being said, all the exhibits are very well done, and guides are knowledgeable. It's also right by Jackson Park, an already lovely park that will soon be the site of the new President Obama National Library/Museum.

  • Great place! Super fun for kids! And adults!. Anything and everything about science and technology! They offer Lego and Robot experiences! Extra charges for that ! But lots of fun! Come in at the opening time...the museum is huge!
