Tour where you’ll gain special behind-the-scenes access to areas not open to the general public while learning fun, little-known facts about some of the Museum’s most popular exhibits. Catch a quick flick at the Museum’s Omnimax® theater—Chicago’s only five-story, domed, wrap-around theater—or check out the popular Smart Home: Green + Wired exhibit to learn more about eco-friendly living.
