We purchased the CityPass to skip the line, although there wasn't really one. The Museum of Science and Industry is huge and offers plenty to see and do. The U-505 exhibit was the highlight for us. Take the tour through the actual submarine with knowledgeable guides and experience it yourself!

I made the guide for all my family, because it was not my first visit and every time I welcome friends or family I take them to this very interesting museum, it tells the story of our industries in Chicago,

The museum has been my favorite of all time!! Growing up in Chicago and going at least once a year with school, I have all the feelers being back 20 sum years later. Still the best museum in Chicago. With COVID, they issue stylists to touch and have mask security around making sure you are wearing your mask. Some experiences are closed but still well worth it! Reservations only so that limits the people. I just wish we didn't have to pay for parking.

A lot of the exhibits were shut down or limited due to Covid-19. This is a museum for children. I went with another adult so it was not very engaging. Children would love it!!!
