Museum of Science and Industry Unexpectedly Closes for Military Artifact Transfer

Military artifacts to be moved as Museum of Science and Industry closes on Wednesday

On Wednesday, the Museum of Science and Industry was unexpectedly closed to facilitate the transfer of military artifacts from archival storage. Initially referred to as “unplanned maintenance,” the closure was necessary to ensure the safe and proper removal of the items. The decision to move the artifacts on short notice was due to scheduling conflicts and the availability of officials involved in the process.

Military personnel and local officials were present on-site to oversee the relocation out of an abundance of caution. Details about the type and quantity of artifacts being moved, as well as their destination, were not disclosed by Ryan. Visitors who had purchased tickets in advance for Wednesday were informed that they could receive a refund or reschedule their visit by contacting 773-684-1414. The museum is set to reopen on Thursday for regular operating hours, as indicated in a news release.

The temporary closure allowed for the safe transfer of military artifacts and ensured the continued preservation of these historical items at the Museum of Science and Industry.
