Be inspired and intrigued at the Western Hemisphere’s largest science museum completely free!
Chicago has one of the best collections of museums and attractions on the planet. Visiting all of them can get a little costly, especially if you’re taking the family. So it’s understandable why free admission days generate quite a lot of hype!
Luckily for us, the wonderful variety of museums and attractions in the Windy City love to announce free days throughout the year offering locals the chance to see some of the world’s most awe-inspiring wonders regularly, for absolutely zero cost.
This September the museum is offering free entry on 6-7, 12-15, 19-20, 26-27.
All visitors must bring proof of residency to be eligible for the free admission days and entry is limited to six children under the age of 18 per one accompanying adult.
The Museum of Science & Industry currently has a range of exclusive exhibitions taking place which are not included in the free museum entry but can be purchased at a reduced fee. This includes the award-winning Art of the Brick, dubbed the world’s largest display of LEGO art which has now been extended through January 16, 2023, and can be experienced for $14 instead of the usual $21.95 entry.
The Coal Mine tours, Dissect an Eye experiences, and Fab Lab workshops are also available at a discounted price of $12 for adults and $9 for children.
As ever the museum is always free for active U.S. military personnel and veterans, Illinois POWs, Chicago firefighters, Chicago police officers, and Illinois teachers. In all cases, a valid occupational I.D. must be provided when purchasing tickets onsite.
Tickets are available online, by phone at (773) 684-1414, or at Museum ticket counters. More information regarding free entry can be found at www.msichicago.org/illinois-free-days.
