The largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere! 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...more

My boys grew up with day trips to this Museum and I always considered it such a blessing. Many mom and stroller trips to pass the winter days with the older ones on a out of school day. I think to this day it was...More
Myself, my wife, my five-year-old, and my two-year-old were all thoroughly entertained during our last visit here. Highly recommended for families & a great activity to do with the weather outside isn't good.
One of my favorite museums anywhere! This place has it all--science exhibits, a real submarine, airplanes, weather exhibits, hands-on activities, an IMAX theater, a large-sized miniature train set, a coal mine and so much more. I have been here several times already but always find...More
Our kids are all 12 and older, so I think we will get good use from it. Yesterday, we enjoyed the Pixar exhibit and once again the U505 tour. We can't wait to return. It's decorated very nicely for Christmas.
Our family-all 11 of us-2 grandparents, 2 sets of parents and 5 kids/grandkids-headed to the Museum first thing in the morning to arrive at the time the doors opened (per the advise of another TA reviewer. This was great advise-even though it was a saturday...More
One of the most interesting, educational and entertaining places to go while in Chocago. My first visit was when o was in eighth grade and it has never failed in its presentation of science and modern day achievements of our country and world.. Truly a...More
Having been in the gigantic German Museum of Sience and Industry / Munich for several times I did not expect to be able to visit 80% of the displays in one day. But, due to the smaller size and excellent organization, we did see most...More
Huge museum, one needs to spend whole day to see everything. With lots of information, amazing exhibitions and funny ways to learn about science. Great place for children and kids. Museum also has gift shop, which is a bit overpriced. They also have several additional...More
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful
gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.

Hi! I bought our tickets in advance online and saved money. Plus, when you walk in, you bypass all the lines and just show your tickets on your phone. Sundays are free admission in September so be aware of that...whether to save money or to reserve your free tickets in advance online. Expect larger crowds if you go on a free day. I would call your hotel now and ask if they offer discounts so you can plan ahead. Parking is under the museum and costs $22. Have a great time!
