Its time for us to once again return to the Museum of Science and Industry. For Saturday June 21, the Museum has FREE admission, the Museum is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Its open from 9:30am to 5:30pm. There will be face painters, costumed characters, balloon artists all day.

The Museum's address is 57th Street and Lake Shore Drive. Here is a link to the Museum's website http://www.msichicago.org/whats-here/event...th-celebration/


Here is the tentative schedule:

Saturday, June 21

Noon Snack at their cafeteria
2:30 3:30 p.m. The Radio Disney Party Patrol will offer music and entertainment for families in the Museums Rotunda.

Then walk around Chicago- we can go visit the bean or go to John Hancock tower.

Well I have never considered MSI boring, it's my favourite museum of ALL TIME but then again I'm a science geek and I could spend a week just staring at the Apollo 8 capsule ;)

But after the last MSI meetup with the gang...I'll never see some of those exhibits the same way again!

I wish I could make it to this but I already committed to helping the anime club at my library with their teahouse that day. (those not coming to the meetup are welcome to come to my library! Pocky and other Japanese treats available for purchase!)

Have tons of fun and I wanna see pictures! And video!! :D

i may be giving up my zombie march for this but it's always a blast to go to these places. I hope it's just like last time. count me in sweets. You know i'm right next to you with this. :)

Kasin, don't judge a place by how boring it is. this place is actually quite fun and enjoyable. If you don't want to go, then that's all you have to say. don't add on by saying how borring it is and such. Atleast give it a chance. We always make boring places fun and full of entertainment.

Kasin, it has one of only two U-boats left in the world, the Apollo 8 capsule, and one of the biggest minature railroad sets on the planet.

Put it this way: I would seriously consider selling you into slavery for the money to go to this place.
