This place is just plain awesome. One of the coolest museums I’ve ever been to. A lot of the attractions they actually encourage you to interact with. For example, I went to see a weather exhibit and they made a mini tornado that you can walk through! Definitely plan on spending a whole day there as there is so much to see and do!
Plan a whole day at this museum. We were only here for four hours and there was sooo much more to see. I was blown away with the building and the exhibits. Everything is just top notch and there is something for everyone. The virtual tornado and nearby weather exhibits were probably our favorite, but the robotics exhibit was also outstanding. And the U-505 and so on. They even presented the various video elements in very interesting ways that keep your attention and make you want to watch them. And since you will be there for a while, know that they cafeteria is also outstanding. Many excellent quality options. We will definitely be back the next time we visit the city.
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.
I went here last spring and have visited a few times before. I really enjoyed the miniature train with the scaled-down city of Chicago all the way to Seattle. So cool! I liked the Zephyr, the submarine, the life science exhibits like the baby chicks and the cycle of life. They even have machines where you can make your own toys. My favorite was the fairy castle. There is so much inventory that the museum staff rotate decorations for the holidays. There are even tiny books signed by famous authors! I had to buy a book (among others) about the little castle because I found it so interesting. Gift shops are cool. Drawbacks, and the reason for 3 stars: This place is expensive!! Everything costs a wad of money to explore. It adds up quick. Also, there should be limits on how many school groups they have at one time. Those kids were out of control and obnoxious. The staff and teachers/chaperones seemed to be oblivious to it. It ruins the overall experience. Even still, I'd still visit again in a heartbeat!
Incredibly fun for all ages. The exhibits are highly interactive, exciting, and informative. The range of exhibits is considerable, from a storm center to a mirror maze to a gestation display to a fairy castle. The only way it could get better is if it was open after-hours for adults only.
