Museum Of Science And Industry - Review

In the Beautiful Palace of Fine Arts building, three floors are dedicated to the man’s discovery and exploration of the natural world. The 800 exhibits are incredible, and include some of humanity’s crowning scientific achievements; the Zephr train that broke the landspeed record in the 1930’s, a model coal mine, and an Appolo 8 module are the prime attractions, but they are only the tip of the iceberg. Take the kids and spend at least half the day. Then come back again in a few years. It never gets old, and it’s super children friendly. Be ahead of your time by planning a visit to Museum of science and industry in Chicago trip planner.

  • I loved it! Wife loved it! Kids loved it! Ticketing was very simple and fast and the employees were very helpful. There was a balance of new and old exhibits. We watched “Tornado Alley” and wished we had done the “Coal Mine” instead. We also took a tour on the U-571....which was awesome! Great interactive exhibits on weather, electricity, sound, etc. The kiddos (aged 7 & 9) really loved being able to touch, pull, play, push things rather than walk past displays in glass boxes. Probably the best museum experience we’ve had....ever!

  • It was pretty crowded and warm inside (based on a weekend visit in July). The standard entrance fee exhibits are fun for kids. Anything extra is pretty exorbitantly priced. Architecture is beautiful. Would put it up there in one of the required spots to see for tourists if only for the history of the building. Would say required for any Chicagoan to see but I'm guessing we've all done the field trip or family outing there at some point in our lives.

  • Overall an awesome museum. Unique presentation on EARTH REVEALED. The host of the show (Daniel??) is well informed and very interactive. The short video on glaciers is also very powerful. And the submarine. However the colour coded staircases are not very clear. It's a bit confusing. The routing to see all the exhibits is also not clear ..you end up seeing 'EXIT' sign every where...and this leads to another set of exhibits! To reach the museum, I took a walk from oriental institute and followed the route. It led to the back of the museum. Few sign boards on all the sides will help. The board's only say ONLY EXIT..It can also mention go direction for ENTRY!! The food court can be better with more choices and here also you go around in circles!

  • A must-visit location for anyone visiting Chicago who loves science and technology. It's one of the top museums in the country and for good reason! Every exhibit is extremely interactive. While there are certainly a few parts that could use some updates, I've been going ever since I was a kid and often multiple times a year. I love it. A great spot for kids and adults alike! There's something for everyone.

  • Outstanding place. Fun for all ages. You would think I am talking about the circus. Well they have exhibits about that to. This museum truly has a little bit of everything in a great fun and exciting learning environment. I have been going here since I was 10 years old and as much as things stay the same they also change for the better almost every time I visit. There truly is nothing I can really said bad about this museum. Adults, teens, children, even small children will have something to do
