Giant Dome Theater



Scientific adventures come to life with state-of-the-art projection and a five-story screen.

The state-of-the-art laser projection system in MSI’s Giant Dome Theater is the first of its kind in Chicago—and one of only two in the world. Combined with our five-story, wrap-around dome screen, what was already an amazing viewing experience has now become awe-inducing. Immerse yourself in the brightest, clearest and most colorful picture we’ve ever presented. Travel the globe on a scientific adventure without ever leaving your seat.

The Giant Dome Theater is not included in Museum Entry and requires an additional timed-entry ticket.
