Giant Dome Theater

The beloved Giant Dome Theater will debut a new look! The theater is temporarily closed as we install new seats, lighting and carpet, improve accessibility and give our GIANT screen a thorough cleaning. The big, big movies will return in Spring 2020.

Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes

The Museum of Science and Industry invites you to join us this fall for Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes. This exhibition celebrates eight decades of the Marvel Universe, with more than 300 original artifacts, including some of Marvel’s most iconic costumes, props and original art.

Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes traces the story of the company and its influence on visual culture, while also uncovering the stories of individual characters such as Captain America, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther and Doctor Strange. The exhibition also honors pioneering creators such as Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, whose imagination made Marvel into the endlessly expansive fictional universes we know today.

Tickets are discounted for members.
