My young grandsons thoroughly enjoyed the museum, especially the children's section. The planetarium was very informative and my 9 year-old absorbed a lot of the info.

The Museum of Science & Industry is a not-for-profit, science museum which keeps it exhibits fresh. It is a nice place to have fun and learn.

A lot of interactive exhibits for all to enjoy. The IMAX theater has an interesting dome viewing and is worth a see. A planetarium and lots of activities for the kids.
