No matter what you expect in your stocking, celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at MSI, 21-and-up style. On Friday, November 17, the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago invites you to experience MSI after the Museum closes to the public. Kick off your holiday season by being among the first to see MSI’s beloved Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light exhibits, listen to live music from famed Chicago DJ Jesse De La Peña and snap naughty—or nice—selfies with Santa Claus and Krampus. From 7 – 10 p.m., you can enjoy cocktails, seasonal beer, mulled wine, snacks and more than a dozen MSI exhibits and experiences, including: Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light: Explore more than 50 trees and displays that offer insight into the diverse customs that exist during the holiday season. * Coal Mine: See firsthand where Santa gets his coal supply for the naughty list. YOU! The Experience: See how spreading joy is good for your body, mind and spirit through hands-on experiences. Giant Dome Theater: Enjoy a selection of clips from our favorite holiday movies in Chicago’s only five-story, wrap-around domed theater. Science Storms: Investigate the science behind nature’s power as you control the dynamics of a 40-foot tornado, trigger an avalanche, unleash a tsunami and try more than 50 amazing experiments. Don’t miss the Tesla Coil—which fires off 1.5 million volts of electricity! * Numbers In Nature: A Mirror Maze: Grab the ultimate selfie in our 1,800-square-foot mirror maze, a dizzying and mesmerizing array of repeating reflections. Learn more about the mathematical patterns found in nature, art, the human body and more.
