The Museum of Science and Industry was closed on Wednesday to move military artifacts from archival storage. Originally, the museum had described the shutdown as “unscheduled maintenance,” but it was actually necessary to ensure the proper and safe disposal of artifacts.

Specially trained military personnel and local officials were present at the site to oversee the process. However, due to scheduling conflicts and unavailability of officials, the relocation was done on short notice.

Museum spokeswoman Kelsey Ryan confirmed that they are taking precautions and prioritizing safety during the move. However, she did not provide details on the specific type or number of artifacts that were moved or where they were moved. Despite Wednesday’s closure, the museum is expected to reopen Thursday for regular business hours.

Anyone who purchased tickets in advance for Wednesday can get a refund or rebook their tickets by calling 773-684-1414. The museum apologized for any inconvenience caused by the closure and relocation of the artifacts.
