One of the world’s greatest science museums is certainly a visit worth making.
Located just over 2 miles away from our hotel by is one of Chicago’s most famous and noteworthy tourist attractions, the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. Widely considered one of the world’s great museums, the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry is comparable to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.
The Museum of Science and Industry is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Chicago and is located a little over 5 minute drive from our parking lot at the Chicago University Hotel. The museum is fast and holds a huge variety of collections which are so diverse and brought in their scope but it is hard to take in even in a full day visit so you may want to plan multiple trips during your stay with us. Suffice it to say, but one of the most widely used terms used by our guests to describe their visits to the Museum of Science and Industry is, “WOW”.
Killer storms to the inventions of the genius Nicholas Tesla are mixed with ancient boats, and futuristic bots and wide variety of exhibits to bring science and industry to life for guests of all ages. Your kids and the kid in you will enjoy exploring some museums exhibits which include a genuine World War II German U-Boat submarine, trains mining equipment, miniature Landscapes of Chicago as well as hundreds of other items that will fascinate and astound.
IF you want to leave the car in our free parking lot, the The Chicago Transit Authority provides helpful public transit information on its RTA Trip Planner to provide specific instructions about which bus or train to take and where to catch it. We also offer a free shuttle on a scheduled basis to the museum throughout the day.
