If your family plans on visiting this museum 2x a year, the family pass is definitely the way to go. Why go 2x a year (or more)? Well, in the summer is a great place to bring the kids so they can enjoy all the interactive exhibits. In the winter, the Museum of Science and Industry celebrates the Christmas holidays with their famous Christmas Trees Around the World.
So how does it compare to buy individual tickets versus Family Membership? For a family of four, you will pay $120 entrance fee for the museum and three exhibits, plus parking (usually $30), plus whatever you purchase in the gift shop. That $150+ is for one visit.
For the $155 Annual Family Membership, you get unlimited visits to the museum, free guest passes, FREE PARKING, free passes to the special exhibits, discounted entrance to the short-term exhibits (we had to pay an extra $4.50 to see the Walt Disney Exhibit, but it was totally worth it). Plus, you get discounts for food and the gift shop, and invitations to special events throughout the year.
Just a note: I do not work for the museum, and I have no affiliation whatsoever with the museum other than owning a Family Membership. I just believe in the importance of supporting the cultural arts, and I also believe in stretching my family's dollars. Go Cubs!
