Beat the Winter Blues at MSI Chicago

Raise your hand if you are tired of hearing "I'm bored". Keep them up if you think your children have been watching way too much television these past snow-covered weeks. Why not do yourself and your wallet a favor by heading the the Museum of Science and Industries this month. How can you beat this deal:


From February 1 through February 28 the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago will offer FREE MUSEUM ENTRY to kids, ages 3-11. This is a perfect time to escape the house, beat the winter blues and experiment in fun at MSI with the whole family!

Free Museum Entry for kids also makes it a great time to purchase tickets to the Museum’s temporary exhibit offering, Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, presented by D23: The Official Disney Fan Club. Explore nine decades of marvelous Disney innovation and history; see drawings, props, costumes and artwork from famed Disney films and television shows; and even learn to draw a favorite Disney character in the Animation Academy! (NOTE: This exhibit still requires an additional ticket for kids, but the Museum Entry portion for those 3-11 would be waived.)

MSI offers a convenient indoor garage parking to escape the cold—and an exciting day of science-filled adventures. Run in a human-sized hamster wheel. See lightning strike—indoors! Manipulate a tornado. Climb inside a historic locomotive. Dissect a real eyeball. Witness fiery chemistry at work. And much, much more

Free Kids Museum Entry tickets must be obtained on-site at the Museum ticket counter. They cannot be acquired online. Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives tickets can be added at ticket counter. For more information and restrictions, visit msichicago.org.

NOTE: This offer is good for child Museum Entry tickets only (valid for ages 3-11).Up to four free child tickets allowed with the purchase of one full paying adult. Additional experiences, including Omnimax® films, U-505 Submarine on-board tour, Future Energy Chicago, Coal Mine, Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives and special tours are not included in Museum Entry. They require additional, timed-entry tickets. Offer not valid for groups taking advantage of group pricing or those using any other discount or offer.  No refunds will be given for tickets already purchased for February dates. Parking is not included.

Disney Gal Judy and I were just at the museum Sunday to attend a presentation/book signing by Disney Legend Marty Sklar. It was an inspiring afternoon which we will be posting about later this week. We also had a chance to revisit D23 Presents - Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives. How wonderful to see parents sharing their childhood Disney memories with their children as they walked through the exhibit. Why not share the magic with your children? Make sure your weekend plans include a stop at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industries, you won't be disappointed.
