2012 Guide To The Museum Of Science And Industry

This might be my most favorite museum in Chicago. It doesn’t have the stiffness of the Field Museum and everything is hands-on. The museum has done a lot of improvements in the past couple of years to take it beyond the ‘80s style exhibits into more, flashy 21st century displays. If you haven’t been in awhile, it might be time to make a visit back to the largest science center in the Western Hemisphere to enjoy what they have to offer.
