    Over a decade ago, the US Department of Energy installed a wind turbine at LSC to demonstrate the feasibility of using wind as a source of energy in urban areas. Check it out from the 4th floor deck.

    This zany science museum is home to the first Hoberman sphere. Though geared toward littles (the calendar is packed with interactive learning events), it brings out the childish nerd in any adult.

    Do NOT do the interactive movie. A DVD movie carried to a classroom(theater) and played for you to watch a child's movie. The most interaction you get is putting the seat down to sit.

    Long lines and big crowds on rainy days. You can skip the line by buying tix on your phone and pick them up at the welcome counter IF you can navigate their mobile site.

    Start at the top and work your way down. See an IMAX movie. The cafe is a bit expensive as you might expect, but a nice selection beyond burgers and pizza. Read more

    Don't watch a legit movie in this IMAX, the seats are beyond uncomfortable and the resolution is distorted on standard camera filmed scenes. You're better off going to AC or Lincoln Square

    When in the Skyscraper exhibit, make sure you know the difference between the Curtain Wall Test and the Wind Tunnel Lab. Curtain Wall is the one you go in and sit!

    Definitely take the time to watch an IMAX or 3D movie, but check show times before you come; they're different weekend vs weekday.
