During the recent spring break, many students in Illinois flocked to Chicago museums. However, one of the city’s most iconic attractions, the Museum of Science and Industry, was unexpectedly closed due to “unplanned museum maintenance.” In a statement, the museum announced that it would reopen the following day for “normal spring break business hours.”

Later that day, a statement from the museum shed light on the reason behind the closure. The military artifacts stored in the museum’s archives were being relocated as part of an ongoing renovation project. As a precautionary measure, trained military personnel and local officials were on site during the removal process. The museum chose to close its doors to visitors to ensure a safe and proper relocation.

The move was completed by Wednesday morning, and the museum confirmed that it would reopen as planned with extended hours for spring break. From 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, Illinois residents could enjoy free admission to this beloved institution. Regular business hours of 9:30 am to 4:30 pm resumed on Monday, April 8th.

On Wednesday’s unscheduled closure, more information can be found on the museum’s website for those looking forward to learning more about this fascinating piece of history.
