    Great museum. We only had a half day but could have spent multiple days.

    Really amazing experience for all ages, in a super old, beautiful building where the 1893 World Fair was held. The nazi submarine exhibit is amazing and the Tesla coil is awesome.

    Although advertised for adults and kids. This is a museum only for kids. The only good thing for adults is the submarine and its amazing history.

    Coolest museum I’ve ever been to. Trains were amazing. Lots to see and touch and learn for adults and kids alike.

    If you love trains this is the place to be anytime of the year.

    It takes waaay more than a day to visit. The storms exhibit was my favourite. The garden is not open on winter :(

    Fun place for kids and curious adults. Go check out the 1993 national championship UM solar car in the lower level race car section. Pretty neat!

    My favorite exhibit will always be the dollhouse.The story teller does a great job or narrating the individual rooms and trinkets contained within and without.

    Everything is fun with lots of hands on learning. Love the mini experiment tables set up all over. I will say that the Robotics room that you have to pay extra for is not well managed.

    Amazing museum, don't forget that visit the submarine and temporal exhibitions has an extra cost

    The weather science area was neat, as was the U505, but way too many exhibits were broke/down for maintenance. We paid $162 just to get in and felt like it was a waste! Very disappointed!!!

    I feel like the Museum of Science & Industry could be cool, but I didn't have a good experience personally -- too many kids. Go during the school year, preferably during the school week.

    I loved this! I was last here when I was 8, and it was as great as I remember. Not terribly expensive, either.

    Come here early in the day. There are a lot of tours for exhibits and you want to give yourself time to do them. Also make sure to do the coal mining tour.

    Incredible museum. Well curated with a thoughtful flow and amazing exhibits. The U-505 exhibit was the highlight. Allow at least 4 hours

    Great museum for kids and adults. Tons to see and do. Some of the exhibits are showing their age, but all-in-all it's a good way to spend a day.

    U505 is always good. I really like the fairy castle. The chicks are always fun when they hatch.

    Order your tickets online instead of waiting in line at the museum. You might even snag a promo code this way!

    Everything! The trains, the planes, the Storms room, the submarine, the coal mine, the space exhibit, the YOU Experience, the baby chicks, even the food court!

    Don't miss the flight simulators on the top floor! And be aware that they can turn a full 360 degrees - can be a surprise if you don't realize that you can literally fly upside down in them.

    This is probably the best museum I've been to. I usually don't like museums, but this museum is pretty fun and interactive. Took a while for me to walk through the whole museum and explore everything.

    Appeals to families and kids. To me, this museum felt more like a history museum than science.

    Be sure to visit when in Chicago - it's well organized and highly engaging, easily days worth of viewing; the U-505 submarine tour is a must visit and worth the extra price of admission

    It's a great place for kids. U505, Coal mine are so much fun. Pick 2-3 exhibits for a day. The food court has so many options. Going back again soon.

    Awesome time here! The brick by brick exhibit was fantastic. By tickets to limited time exhibits online or it might be sold out.
