Going from Andersonville to Museum of Science & Industry

We are planning to go to the museum on a weekday next week. We're staying in Andersonville and have access to a car. Given we need to cross town to get there, we were wondering if it would be preferable to use public transit? Any idea how long it would take to get there? If you recommend driving, any suggested route? Thanks!

Google Maps can give you driving directions and public transit options.

I would simply drive down Lake Shore Drive all the way. The museum is at 57th Street and right by the lakefront so it would be an easy drive. Plus you'd be driving a beautiful road, with nice views of the city and the parks along the shoreline.

Public transportation would be very slow by comparison. You'd had to change trains or buses down at the Loop.

Drive. It'll be much faster. You can get on Lake Shore Drive on Foster, which is one of the main streets through Andersonville, and take it all the way to the museum. Maybe 45 minutes. Even in rush hour, I'd drive it. Doing it on public transport will take much longer. Andersonville does not have a CTA stop so will require a bus to the red line, taking the red line downtown, then switching to another bus.

Another vote to drive. You can park underneath the museum for $20 or you can find street parking which isn't that hard.
