The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI), the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere, is home to more than 35,000 artifacts and more than 400,000 square feet of hands-on experiences designed to spark scientific inquiry and creativity. Since opening our doors in 1933, we've welcomed more than 180 million guests from around the world. Our mission, to inspire the inventive genius in everyone, is realized through our world-class interactive science exhibitions. Even bigger than our mission is our vision: to inspire and motivate our children to achieve their full potential in the fields of science, technology, medicine and engineering. The Welcome to Science Initiative helps children achieve their full potential in science by creating learning experiences inside and outside the classroom and removing barriers that exclude them from participating. Our unique youth-centered approach means we support students and everyone involved in their success.
