Military artifacts to be moved as Museum of Science and Industry closes on Wednesday


Apr 3, 2024

The Museum of Science and Industry was unexpectedly closed on Wednesday to facilitate the transfer of military artifacts from archival storage. Initially referred to as “unplanned maintenance,” the closure was necessary to ensure the safe and proper removal of the items. Museum spokesperson Kelsey Ryan stated that military personnel and local officials were present on-site to oversee the relocation out of an abundance of caution.

The decision to move the artifacts on short notice was due to scheduling conflicts and the availability of officials involved in the process. Details about the type and quantity of artifacts being moved, as well as their destination, were not disclosed by Ryan. The museum is set to reopen on Thursday for regular operating hours, as indicated in a news release.

Visitors who had purchased tickets in advance for Wednesday were informed that they could receive a refund or reschedule their visit by contacting 773-684-1414. This temporary closure allowed for the safe transfer of military artifacts and ensured the continued preservation of these historical items at the Museum of Science and Industry.
