Celebrate Earth Day

April 22, 2018

Join us as we celebrate the natural beauty of our planet and what makes it so special.

Celebrate Earth Day the MSI way—by getting hands-on! And take $5 off Museum Entry when you visit us on Sunday, April 22, all while discovering ways to keep our planet healthy.

Explore exhibits on topics including conserving energy, recycling and sustainability. Learn about the small steps you can take to make a big impact on issues facing our planet in Extreme Ice and Earth Revealed. Reimagine Chicago’s power usage by designing greener homes, cars, roads and more in Future Energy Chicago.

Hands-on science throughout the day

Get a sneak peek at two new environmental science experiments designed for MSI’s Summer Brain Games before their June debut: creating a cloud in a bottle and making your own simple pH indicator from red cabbage! Guests who add a Wanger Family Fab Lab workshop to their visit will also take home an Earth Day globe, 3D printed using biodegradable materials.
