The Museum of Science and Industry Chicago is the largest science museum in the country.  Housed in the only remaining building from the 1893 World’s Fair, MSI is a Chicago must-see!  You’ll experience 14 acres of hands-on exhibits and have the chance to stand before a 40-foot tornado; take a run in a human-sized hamster wheel; navigate through a mirror maze; board a 727 hanging from the ceiling; transmit your pulse to a 13-foot, 3-D beating heart; and much more!

We did not know ahead of time that the submarine exhibit was entirely closed for "a special event". Very disappointing. Also many exhibits had additional costs. Not too impressed with this venue.

what to expect

Choose either Museum Entry, which grants you access into most of the experiences in the museum.  Or you can choose Museum Entry + one Giant Dome film in the 5-story domed movie theater!

The Museum of Science and Industry's unique and cutting-edge experiences and exhibits have earned some bragging rights. MSI was rated one of the Top 25 Museums in the U.S. by TripAdvisor, one of the Seven Wonders of Chicago by the Chicago Tribune and named one of the Top 10 Science Museums to visit in the United States by American Mensa. Some of the most popular exhibits are the Science Storms, which explores nature's most powerful phenomena. Witness bolts of lightning flashing above you, trigger an avalanche, create a tsunami and more. YOU! The Experience explores the human mind, body, and spirit. Play a game of competitive relaxation with your brain waves.  Get lost in a giant mirror maze in Numbers in Nature, and see baby chicks hatching every day.
