Fun, educational, lots of extra costs

I took my girlfriend here because we missed Chihuly's Pittsburgh exhibit and were lucky enough to find his Macchia here in Chicago while we were in, and had also heard good things about the museum. We got there via the convenience #10 bus which goes right to the museum. The general admission price for adults was $13, but if you wanted to see the special exhibit, which ""The Glass Experience"" was, you had to pay an extra $10 per person. Upon entering, we were amazed by the size of the ...view moreplace. Two floors absolutely filled with exhibits of all kinds, all kinds of interesting topics, covering topics from business to energy to genetics to the environment. The only issue I had was that if you want to do anything except look at small exhibits and read information cards, you have to pay extra. Some of what you had to pay extra for was not even listed. The submarine tour, the smart house tour, the navy flight simulator all were additional costs. It would have been nice if they sold an all-access pass, but regardless if you have the money to spend it is interesting to adults and fun for kids. Aside from that, some of the exhibits are just really cool! The petroleum exhibit had a 20-foot tall room with several multi-colored sections with bubble-filled water that just looked cool to stand in.view less

WOW!

Looking for a good place to see a film?
This place can't be beat!
You are surrounded by a dome and the film is all around you.
AWESOME!

Excellent!

Wow, this is the most incredible science museum. If I had a long layover in Chicago, I would head here all day. The exhibits are exciting, and the museum is well-done. The only pain about it is not the most accessible museum via public transportation. The busses run on an inconsistent schedule.

Best Science Museum!

This is the most outstanding science museum I have ever visited, and I have been to Philadelphia and NYC. You must get here early, because you can easily stay all day. The pretend coal mine is a real treat.

Excellent Museum

This museum is one of the finest in the country. My child keeps asking to return to Chicago, just to visit this museum all day! If you are from flying from one side of the country to another, I recommend stopping in Chicago to spend all day at this museum.

The Best Science Museum!

I have been to science museums in Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and NYC. This museum is the BEST science museum of them all. The exhibits are interesting. Adults and children could spend all day there, easily.

Great museum for ALL ages!

First off, I disagree with several of the other recent reviewers. I'm a 30 something mother of 2 and enjoy coming to this museum quite a bit. It is my husband's favorite museum in the city of Chicago (maybe the country, though it might place 2nd after the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC).\r
\r
There is plenty to do and see here for all ages, not just the Omnimax films, but the U 505, the coal mine, the trains, the Apollo 8 space exhibit, ToyMaker 3000, NetWorld, the
...view more Lunar Module, F airy Castle, the new Farm exhibit and soon to be new Henry Crown Space Center. There are also many special exhibits that are worthwhile to see. I can't imagine being bored here with a bunch of teenagers. What more do you want from your science museum? There's plenty here for the whole family from your toddler up to Grandpa. \r
\r
Second, there are options for families looking to save some bucks. There are free days, check with the museum to be sure when, but they are often an entire week while school is out. Also, if you are a Chicago resident and you go to the Chicago Public Library, you can ask for a museum passport for this museum (and many others). You can have the pass for a week and it will admit 2 adults and 2 kids (I think, check the library for more details). It may be hard to catch one of these passes in the library, (they cannot be reserved) but it can be done.\r
\r
The last money saving option is to become a member. I go to this museum often and there are many benefits to membership. One of the best is that you can get free or discounted parking (depending on level of membership) and free admission to many other science museums across the country (and discounts to Chicago museums like the Children's Museum & the Peggy Notebaert Nature Center).\r
\r
One more money saving tip is to pack your lunch and eat it while watching the pinball machine. \r
\r
Also, the hours change during the seasons. In the winter, the museum is often open until 5:30 p.m.

A definite ""must see!""

This musuem is a must for visitors of all age ranges. A broad range of exhibits includes the newly renovated U-Boat display, as well as traveling exhibitions such as Body Worlds and one featuring anumber of video arcade games, new and old. Don't miss the coal mine (but take note of the hot dog smell as you enter parts of the mine thanks to the adjacent food court). See a real United 727 and plan on spending at least an entire day here because of the number of exhibits. There are a few ...view morebus lines as well as a tourist bus that serve the museum and cabs are plentiful.view less
