Mask Policy and Accommodations
In accordance with the changes to the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois COVID mandates, MSI will no longer require guests to wear masks or show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. However, we strongly encourage each museum visitor to make the individual decision to continue to wear a mask.
In addition, exhibits, classrooms and lab activities with limited physical distancing space will have mask requirements. These include the U-505 On-board Tour, Coal Mine, Dissect an Eye at MSI and the Wanger Family Fab Lab. Masks will be available onsite for guests entering areas where they are required.
If you are unable to medically tolerate wearing a mask and need a mask exemption, please inform the staff at the entry of these spaces who will provide you with an exemption form to complete.
