Museum of Science and Industry

Events down to a science!

5700 S Lake Shore Dr
Chicago, IL 60637


Dine beside a World War II German submarine. Stand inside a 40-foot
tornado. Mingle below historic aircraft. Celebrate the sweet things in a
classic ice cream parlor. MSI is the largest science museum in the
Western hemisphere and is housed in the only remaining structure from
the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. With thousands of exhibits,
artifacts and “wow” moments that last a lifetime, MSI is the premier
destination for unique and engaging special events – we have events down
to a science.
