Emergency Maintenance Shuts Down The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Visitors to be Refunded or Rescheduled

The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago is temporarily closing its doors on Wednesday for unplanned maintenance. Although the specifics of the maintenance were not disclosed in a statement on the museum’s website, it was announced that anyone who had already purchased tickets for that day would be refunded or could reschedule for another time. The museum plans to resume normal operations on Thursday.

The Museum of Science and Industry currently hosts several exhibitions, including “007 Science: Inventing the World of James Bond,” which delves into the science and technology behind the iconic movie franchise. Another exhibit, “The Blue Paradox,” takes visitors beneath the ocean’s surface to explore the impact of plastic pollution. Additionally, the museum is showcasing the Black Creativity Juried Art Exhibition, an annual event since 1970, until April 21. Visitors can also watch films like “Dark Universe,” “Michael Jordan to the Max,” and “Tornado Alley” in the Giant Dome Theater until May 17.
