MSI After Hours: Field Trip

Price — $30.00

Museum of Science and Industry invites adults to relive their childhood school days with a nostalgia-filled, grown up field trip

MSI is giving "big kids" a one night experience to revisit some of their favorite childhood exhibits such as the Coal Mine, the U-505 Submarine (guests can walk on board!), Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle, and The Idea Factory. Nostalgic activities will be sprinkled throughout the evening, including making friendship bracelets, taking a school photo, recess games, hands-on experiments, and much more! Guests are encouraged to enjoy other fun-filled activities such as Improv Comedy, Classic Board Games, and a Museum-Wide Scavenger Hunt. For the first time during MSI After Hours, the Baby Chick Hatchery will also be open for guests to learn about the preservation of rare chicken breeds, and the impacts of genetic engineering. 

This MSI After Hours event is 21+, where guests can enjoy boozy juice boxes, cocktails, "grown-up" lunch boxes, and other snacks. A cash bar will also be available. Tickets can be reserved online and more information can be found at: https://www.msichicago.org/explore/whats-here/events/msi-after-hours-field-trip/

Guests are encouraged to bring a partner and relive the best day of the school year at Chicago's number 1 field trip destination! It'll be a night you don't want to miss. For more questions: afterhours@msichicago.org
