Join in and do your own experiments to find the answers to those questions you have always wanted to know.
A very lively museum.
This is not suitable for those who like to go into a museum, stroll quietly through its rooms and admire the displays; here you will be made to investigate for yourself and take part in the exhibitions. Life magazine chose it as one of the top 15 museums in the world, and in this fascinating place, surrounded by science, you will have a truly unforgettable experience. In its rooms you will be able to investigate the causes of natural phenomena with fascinating experiments and answer questions such as what causes a tornado or lightning. With more than 35,000 objects there is no doubt that you will be amazed, for instance the U-505 Submarine, the only German submarine in the United States. You will also be able to go on a scientific adventure with the extraordinary show in the dome of the Omnimax Theater or have a go on the Motion Simulator Ride. Bus routes 2, 6 and 10 will take you to the museum which is located on Lake Shore Drive. For information go to: www.msichicago.org
