Now with more than 20 all-new interactive installations.
Whether it’s the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil ever discovered or the works of celebrated painters like Vincent van Gogh, Edward Hopper, and Claude Monet – Chicago prides itself on the content of its acclaimed museums.
What West Loop’s WNDR Museum offers, however, is an utterly unique and ever-evolving encounter far from your regular museum excursion and unlike anything you’ll find anywhere in the Midwest.
With more than 20 all-new installations, the multifaceted museum is now housing a reimagined 2021 collection and a refreshing, brand-new experience for those who have visited in years gone by.
Voted one of the Top Five Immersive Art Experiences in the Country, WNDR reimagines the traditional museum excursion and engrosses guests with an eclectic mix of interactive installations.
If you’ve visited the 10,000-square-foot museum before, you’ll now find a whole new array of immersive art in every shape and form. With a constantly rotating selection of cutting-edge works from a wide range of artists, technologists, designers, and innovators, no two visits to the WNDR museum are the same.
For all its vanguard technology and high-tech experiences, WNDR does not lack in the raw beauty of art. The new collection of installations include works merging painted landscapes and kaleidoscopic display with the wonders of the modern age to provide a unique experience of art in all its variety.
In addition to Chicago’s first-ever Infinity Mirror Room by iconic Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, more than 20 installations from both local and global studios promise to awaken guests’ senses and unleash their imagination.
Gauge works by Keith Haring and Alex Israel from a completely new perspective. Be transported to hyper-real environments with sight, sound, and scent at FLUX Room by S̶A̶N̶T̶IA̶G̶O̶ X. Text a word, phrase or image to COLORWAVE by sosolimited and be awed by the colorful animation that follows.
WNDR is a playground of possibility and a home for disruptive thinking and iconoclastic action,” said Brad Keywell, founder of WNDR. “This is a multi-sensory experience, reflecting the joy of wonder itself.”
Once guests are done enjoying the expansive interactive playground, the WNDR shop provides the opportunity to purchase exclusive clothes, prints, and items inspired by the museum’s thought-provoking installations.
To ensure the safety of all, health & safety protocols will be carried out at WNDR including obligatory mask-wearing, limited capacity, and temperature checks for both guests and staff upon arrival. There are also social distancing markers and hand sanitizing stations placed throughout the museum as well as increased air ventilation so that guests can enjoy full immersion and maximum comfort.
