Starting Thursday, November 19, the Museum of Science and Industry will temporarily close to the public until further notice as the state moves to slow the surge of COVID-19. We were so excited to share the holidays with you, however we must do our part to ensure the spread of this disease does not get worse.
We will be working hard from home to bring you engaging science content through our website and social channels, and we have several free resources for you to explore:
Learning Resources: The Learning Resources virtual hub provides free educational tools in science, technology, engineering and medicine to bring STEM learning to students anywhere, anytime. (msichicago.org/resources)
Science at Home: Keep learning in place and at your pace with science activities and topics you can access anytime with experiments, games and videos. (msichicago.org/scienceathome)
Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light: Explore an online map of trees and displays featured in MSI’s holiday exhibits, decorated by volunteers from Chicago’s diverse communities. Learn about the rich customs of more than 40 countries and cultures. This page will be updated throughout the holiday season. (msichicago.org/trees)
