    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.

    The best science museum I've ever visited, very interactive and educating!
  • Zach S.
    Appeals to families and kids. To me, this museum felt more like a history museum than science.

    Definitely go through the U-505 sub exhibit. Totally worth the price of admission!

    Plan on a full day! Filled with hands on fun for kids and adults--buy an omnimax ticket to rest your feet and have a feast for your eyes

    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

    Amazing!! Deserves a whole day and even 2 or 3.

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

    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.

    Massive museum. Give yourself plenty of time. The injection-molded plastic souvenirs in each area are unique and fun.

    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.

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

    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!
