Are you on Santa’s naughty or nice list this year?

No matter what you expect in your stocking, celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at MSI, 21-and-up style.

On Friday, December 15, the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago invites you to experience MSI after the Museum closes to the public. Kick off your holiday season with MSI’s beloved Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light exhibits, sip seasonal drinks and snap naughty—or nice—selfies with Santa Claus and Krampus.

From 6 to 10 p.m., you can enjoy seasonal cocktails and hot chocolate as the Museum is yours to explore. (Pompeii: The Exhibition and the U-505 Submarine will be closed during the event.)
