Museum Of Science And Industry, Chicago Reviews - Write a Review
Our kids (6 & 4) love this place. They are always asking to go there. It was great to see the reopened space exhibit. As a member it's awesome to get to go to the member's lounge. They have a good selection of rotating exhibits. The most recent robots self-guided exhibit was a lot of fun. We speedy love seeing if we will get to watch a baby chicken hatch in the incubator. They is also a great hands on area for kids off all ages with dry and water play zones. It's a little pricey, but one of the best child friendly science museums I've ever been to.
Always enjoy visiting the Museum of Science and Industry while in Chicago. The diversity of the exhibits and how it comes together in the central atrium really give a holistic experience you expect visiting an excellent science center. Further, the use of the wings to provide a smooth flow between each subject is natural and intrinsic. Finally, the staff throughout the exhibits were friendly, engaging, and enthusiastic about bringing innovation and education to the museum guests of all ages and backgrounds. On a side note, the U-505 exhibit is phenomenal!
An exciting museum overall. It's a very interactive place, boasting exhibits such as a mirror maze in an exhibit about the mathematical patterns found in "nature," a Google sponsored robot exhibit, a climate science and climate change exhibit, and a highly interactive weather system exhibit with a floor to ceiling funnel cloud. This is a must-go if you have children: the highly interactive nature upends the cliché if dusty, musty museum and transforms it into an active space, educational but lively. That said, I wished there were more informational components about some if the industrial history -- of Chicago and beyond -- because at times it felt more like a fairground. Another way to out it: if you're deciding between The Art Institute and The Museum of Science and Industry, and you don't have kids, go see the art.
This is a fantastic place to hit with kids and people visiting the Chicago area. Relatively expensive to get in but kids under 3 are free. Pack a lunch with you to save a bit of coin. There is a mini cafeteria (vending only) that's quiet to eat at in the Space exhibit. Try and go first thing in the morning; avoid spring break and holidays; avoid right before school lets out in December (the amount of kids will be staggering at these times). Make sure to visit when their Christmas Tree display is on - trees from most countries decorated in that country's theme. Kids love it. Trains, model of Chicago impressive. Can easily spend a day here with the littles if you're prepared! Relatively stroller friendly (lots of elevators).
Must go see! The museum was absolutely bueatiful and well kept by far one of the nicest I’ve been to. Admission was fair. The only shocker or down side was the $22 parking charge that is too costly in my opinion. There are several exhibits you can see for the regular admission price but there are extras you can purchase throughout the museum. I strongly suggest the U-505 submarine tour for a little extra. Great place for adults and children. Only 4 stars because of the high parking prices.
