NBC Chicago Reports on the Reasons Behind Wednesday Closure of a Popular Chicago Museum


Apr 4, 2024

The Muesum of Science and Industry in Chicago unexpectedly closed for “unplanned museum maintenance” while many students were on spring break. However, the museum announced that it would reopen for “normal spring break operating hours” the following day.

The closure was due to the relocation of military artifacts from the museum’s archives. Specially trained military personnel and local officials were on site to ensure a safe removal process. As a precautionary measure, the museum decided to close to the public during the assessment and relocation.

After completing the relocation process, the museum confirmed that it would reopen as scheduled. The MSI had been operating under extended spring break hours since Monday and would resume its regular operating hours on April 8.

Illinois residents can look forward to a free admission day at the museum on April 21. For more information on the unplanned closure and reopening, visitors can check the museum’s website.
