Spring Break Disruption at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry: An Unexpected Closure and a Special Treat for Illinois Residents

NBC Chicago Reports on the Reasons Behind Wednesday Closure of a Popular Chicago Museum

The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago was unexpectedly closed for “unplanned museum maintenance” while many students were on spring break. However, the museum announced that it would reopen for “normal spring break operating hours” the following day.

The closure was due to the relocation of military artifacts from the museum’s archives. Specially trained military personnel and local officials were on site to ensure a safe removal process. As a precautionary measure, the museum decided to close to the public during the assessment and relocation.

After completing the relocation process, the museum confirmed that it would reopen as scheduled. The MSI had been operating under extended spring break hours since Monday and would resume its regular operating hours on April 8.

As a special treat for Illinois residents, the museum is offering free admission on April 21. Visitors can check out the newly relocated military artifacts while enjoying free admission to this popular Chicago attraction. For more information about the unplanned closure and reopening, visitors can check out the museum’s website.
