Museum of Science and Industry’s Unexpected Spring Break Closure: Relocating Military Artifacts and Free Admission Day

During the spring break, many students in Illinois flock to Chicago museums. However, one of the most iconic spots, the Museum of Science and Industry, was unexpectedly closed for “unplanned museum maintenance.” The museum later announced that it would reopen for “normal spring break operating hours” the next day.

In a statement, the museum explained that it had decided to close temporarily to ensure a safe and proper relocation of military artifacts from its archives. Trained military personnel and local officials were on site during the removal process. On Wednesday, April 3rd, regular operating hours from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. were expected to resume as scheduled.

On Monday, April 8th, Illinois residents can look forward to a free admission day at the museum as part of its extended hours for spring break. The museum opens at 9:30 a.m., closes at 5:30 p.m., and is open until then every day this week except Sunday when it is closed for Easter weekend celebrations.
