I thought it was amazing specially the science there is so much to do your kids will love it!
The MSI is an incredible museum. It's free
3 HOURS AND MORE, NO LESS!!!!!!The most fun science museum I've been in my life. If you're scared off by the name "museum" then don't worry. It is indeed a place with a tremendous amount of interactive learning. You will have the best experience ever. And besides you'll learn a lot without even noticing it.The museum has 4 floors, if you rush maybe you can make it to all floors and areas within 2 hours. If you want to get the full experience, going into the submarine, the Robot Google thing, Mirror Maze etc. you will at least need 5 hours.IT'S WORTH YOUR TIME!!!
Best museum in Chicago! Great for interactive exhibits. Highly recommend the coal mine and the Swiss ball.
I love the scale of their natural disasters wing. You are greeted with a 2 story tall vortex!!! Loved their large scale miniature train display - both the urban and rural settings. There are some interactive buttons to make sounds and make trees "fall" over. If you get a chance, walk in the green stairwell? It has mechanical machines on display where you can see how the pieces all work together to make a complete system. Paid for their special robot exhibit, and I'm still on the fence about its worth. It was a small exhibit and had some cool pieces, but I am remembering it as underwhelming. I think the BEST part of the museum was their mirror maze. It was a lot of fun trying to get through. Was worth the admission price. Spent about 4 hours inside and was able to see everything.
Best science museum! Lots of hands on activities.
