Museum of Science and Industry - expert review
The beloved MSI is one of the most visited sites in Chicago, and for good reason. The sprawling open space has 2,000 exhibits on three floors, with new exhibits exploring different technologies being added constantly. The museum's high-tech interior is hidden by the classical revival exterior; it wa...

This is a great place for kids. They have a lot of hands-on things. They offer rooms with old fashioned phones (you can call the other person and hear them as the phone sounded in those days) and an Incubater with chicks (this is good for about 20min. They just watch the egg slowly cracking open. Th...

Museum of Science and Industry - user review
(* parking garage fees of $7.75) When I was a kid, this was my favorite place ! Real Airplanes hang from the ceiling as if they are divebombing you from a concrete sky. The full size coal mine takes you down the shaft in a miners elevator where you then ride the electric cars as if YOU are going to ...

Museum of Science and Industry - user review
This was a great place for kids to learn. We homeschool our children and there were so many exhibits that dealt with the curriculum we've already covered and some that we still have to cover. The cool, but grossest part were the human slices and embryo/fetuses. They have a display of embryo/fetuses ...

Museum of Science and Industry - user review
I couldn't wait to go back to this museum. I remembered being in awe of everything as a child. What a disappointment. The musuem is in desperate need of some renovations. A lot of the exhibits were broken. I could definitely tell its prime was back when I was a child. I'm sure it would still be very...

The Museum of Science and Industry is one of the best museums in Chicago, and that?™s saying a lot. There are exhibits for both the young and old here! It isn?™t a stuffy old museum that requires you to be quiet and doesn?™t allow you to touch. No, here you are allowed to walk through the human hear...

Dissapointed - user review
I would have to say that the actual Museum of Science and industry is pathetic at best. Sure the U-505 sub is worthwhile, the OmniMaxx is worthwhile, train layout and coal mine. The h...

Field Trip - user review
Not a bad place, though not as exciting as anticipated. Our field trip of 4th & 5th graders had to rush, too, so we missed some of the stuff (maybe something really cool?). I lik...
