Museum of Science and Industry
This museum makes science fun with interactive, educational exhibits that stretch the imagination. Spend time in a 13-foot heart as you learn about how yours works. Find out how technology has influenced history by stepping back in time on "Yesterday's Main Street." Watch action-packed films in the museum's giant-screen Omnimax Theatre or take a ride down a coal mine. And don't leave without picking up some great souvenirs at The Big Idea museum shop. Omnimax requires additional fee. Parking available in underground garage.
I wish I could get those 5 hours of my life back. Hands-on displays were not operational. Most of the exhibits seemed to be geared to elementary school children rather than for all age groups. If ratings had indicated a 3 star level, I don't think I would have been so disappointed. There is no way this museum ranks a 4.5 rating. I've been to many museums that are far superior to this one.

My husband and I took our granddaughter, age 2. We went at Christmas time 2008, when the museum USED to be at it's best with it's Christmas trees. The trees were a disgrace...looked like they were just pulled out year after year with no upkeep. It didn't look like a museum of any kind. "Displays" were few just put here and there far apart, and there was no consistency or understanding. Everything we used to love about the museum when our own boys were small are no longer there. It is grossly overcharging with entrance and parking. I wouldn't go there again!
We came, primarily to see "Body Works". That was awesome, but my 2 teenage boys loved the "Game On" exhibit. I bought the City Pass and was a bit disappointed to have to pay more for both of these exhibits, but that is Chicago for you...everything is expensive. It was worth it and we had a great time. Go early in the AM and plan on spending the whole day there to see everything!
