MUSEUM OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY | Now Open with Free Entry August 1-14


With your health and safety as their top priority, MSI has made some changes to create additional time and space for the discoveries you’ve come to expect from an MSI visit.

►Entry times required and limited capacity.

Visiting MSI requires timed admission tickets—available online—to reduce waiting and increase physical distancing. Capacity is also limited to levels below city and state requirements. MSI has nearly half a million square feet, so this creates a lot of room for your exploration.

►Guests required to wear face coverings

All guests age 2 and older must wear face coverings in the Museum, just as their staff and volunteers will be wearing them.

►Some exhibits will be modified

Some exhibits and experiences are modified to create physical distancing, increase movement and reduce contact. A few experiences where these measures aren’t immediately possible have been temporarily closed. They include The Idea Factory, Future Energy Chicago, Coal Mine and tours inside the U-505 Submarine.

MSI hopes you’re as excited to visit as they are to have you. To celebrate, MSI is offering free Museum Entry from August 1 through 14 (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). Remember that you must obtain tickets in advance online—book yours today!
