    Go to the mirror maze early in the morning before the mirrors get smudged. Remember, if you get lost, just keep turning left. And be sure to find the hidden room inside.

    The tesla coil in the storm room fires infrequently, but you can check the timer on the screen on the second floor.

    Visit the chick hatchery to see the incubated eggs and the freshly-hatched. The interactive exhibits are the best part for immersing yourself, even as an adult.

    It's a good museum, but all the extra experiences were sold out when we came. You have to arrive early to get them.

    This is one of my favorite museums I have ever visited. It is very interactive. You will spend the entire day here but it is totally worth it.

  • Anamaria H.

    Play in the Mirror Maze! It's free but you need to get a timed-ticket at the kiosk by the entrance.

  • Vanessa E.

    Good tasty food with a lot of options but really expensive

  • Kelvin C.

    Definitely check out the U-Boat exhibition! It's even worth the price to buy the tour so you can take a look inside the submarine!

    Every single time I'm in Chicago, I try to visit this museum. It's my favorite place to go here; I adore all the exhibits, plus it's totally kid (and family) friendly.

    All the features are very good, but the cost is very expensive,especially when you have more than one child. There should be more discounts, so that people with a certain income can take their kids.

    Get your special tickets early or run the risk of it being sold out for the day.
