Went to the Science and Industry Museum on a Monday with my family. It was my 5th or 6th time being there and it gets better every time. So much of the museum is interactive so both the kids and the adults really can get into the exhibits as you go around the displays. My two favorite sections are the Space Exhibit and the Storm Exhibit. I could spend the day just reading all the information and interacting with the space stuff, there is that much to see. There is a lot of the history of NASA there with the Apollo and Gemini missions but there is a lot of information about future space endeavors as well that I was very impressed with. It is a can't miss. The storm section is fascinating in that with simple demonstrations you can see how solar energy, tidal waves, avalanches, tornadoes and lightning all work. Don't miss the static build ups and discharges displaying lightning, it is loud but very neat to see.
My daughter loved the hatchery in the genetics section where they hatch little chicks, she saw one break out of its shell this visit. There are so many layers of this museum that every time I go I find new things to do or read. Also be sure you don't miss the doll house, it's kind of tucked away in the corner of the basement but it is very interesting to see, even for a guy. The Museum of Science and Industry is a can't miss attraction to go see.
