Our family was provided complimentary tickets to Chicago Museum of Science and Industry in exchange for review. All opinions are my own. This post may contain affiliate links.
When we visited Chicago 10 years ago, Cole as just a baby and we skipped the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. This time, with the kids being 11 and 8, it was top on our place to visit.
The Chicago Museum of Science and Industry is a huge state of the art museum with hands on activities and interactive exhibits everywhere you look. We arrived when they opened and stayed until just before closing and I’m pretty sure we didn’t see everything.
In addition to all the great exhibits that are included with the price of admission, there are also several extra exhibits that you can visit for an additional fee. We choose to go to the Brick by Brick exhibit and it was amazing.
Kiley was chosen to participate in a Lego builder challenge and Cole loved reading about all the models and building with the architecture blocks.
If you go to the Museum of Science and Industry be sure to take time for the Numbers in Nature: A Mirror Maze. You need to pick up tickets from the kiosk for a slotted time. There’s no additional charge for the exhibit but they only allow a certain number of people in at a time.
It took us 2 full tries to get through the maze and it was so much fun. The kids really wanted to try it again but we had so much more to see.
Chicago Museum of Science and Industry is included with a CityPASS Chicago booklet or you can get your tickets online and at the door. In addition to a standard ticket, MSI Chicago offers several specialty exhibits you can add on to your ticket.
