Museum of Science and Industry


Have you ever wanted to invent or create something? Making stuff is cool. I love seeing the interesting things that people dream up and construct themselves. They don’t have to be big or grand to be inspiring – just innovative, creative, or plain old neat!

Here’s something I came across recently that combines a cool accomplishment with a sense of sweet nostalgia – modern 3-D printed records for the old Fisher-Price toy record player!

If you’re interested in getting your own brain into inventive mode, consider stopping by MSI’s Wanger Family Fab Lab to check out our live science experience, Dream It, Design It, Fab It! If you have a bigger challenge in mind, you could even look into a membership at Pumping Station One. All you need to do now is get inspired!
