    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!

    Wonderfully interactive exhibits for all ages. Even the Jollyball can keep us occupied for ages.

    Been here 10+ times
    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.

    Loved it as child but now not so much. Science Storms & model train are great but rest very juvenile. Don't go Fri AM: Field trips are WILD!

    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.
