The museum is super interesting, covers a lot of scientific disciplines, and is well adapted to any type of audience (from small children to science enthusiasts!). The museum requires quite a lot of time to do in full, so make sure you book enough.

If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful
gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.
