My kids and I went to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago this week. This is one of our favorite museums because it’s FILLED with hands-on exhibits. My kids never say, “I’m bored. Can we leave yet?” when we’re there. Usually, it’s more like, “Just five more minutes, Mom? This is fun!” You could spend an entire day at the Museum of Science and Industry and not cover everything (although the museum isn’t so huge that you’d walk away feeling like you’d hardly made a dent).
I’ve included some pictures from our day, but we didn’t get to experience everything the museum has to offer. Besides the pictures below, there’s a Mythbusters exhibit there now! There’s also a German submarine you can tour, a coal mine, a genetics lab, an Omnimax theater, Colleen Moore’s fairytale castle (I SO want to live in that doll house), and so much more!
If you don’t live in Chicago, you can still have some hands-on science fun this summer with the Museum of Science and Industry’s Summer Brain Games. The best part is that it’s FREE to sign up! You can get more information about the program HERE!
