Museum of Science and Industry
This museum makes science fun with interactive, educational exhibits that stretch the imagination. Spend time in a 16-foot (4.8-meter) 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.
Alot of bang for your buck. Alot of variety of exhibits. The Body Works Exhibit was great. There are cadavers. It is real. It was very interesting. You pay extra for it, but it is worth it. You do see ALL body parts.
I visited the Museum of Science and Industry during spring break. I cannot say that I would go back. It was an hour and a half wait to get into the museum and then the place was packed. The most interesting exhibit that they had was the coal mine and I waited and hour for that. The price was definitely not worth it. This museum to me is not even comparable to COSI in Toledo, Ohio. COSI is much better and more interactive.
I've been to this museum four times, and I love it. It is a great place for kids to do hands on activities and learn alot of new info also. The price is $20 for an adult but I think it is worth it. There is also food in the museum for you convience and it is not to pricy but definetly tasty!!!
