With your health and safety as our top priority, here's how to prepare for your visit to MSI.

Reserve your tickets online.

We have reduced daily capacity, and all Museum guests—including members—must reserve timed-entry tickets to enter. Book your tickets in advance to reserve your preferred date and time with fast and contactless admission when you arrive.

Plan ahead and check availability.

We are open Tuesdays through Sundays. (See Museum Hours.) With daily capacity limited, some high-demand dates may sell out.

Planning to see Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes?

Be sure to add it to your ticket order before checkout. Dates are selling out well in advance, so there's even more reason to plan your visit now.

Stay home if you're not well or not sure.

Please reschedule if anyone in your group is experiencing potential COVID-19 symptoms, awaiting COVID test results or has tested positive, or may have had recent COVID close contacts. Rebooking your visit is easy: just email tickethelp@msichicago.org.

Wearing a mask is recommended for some guests.

Masks are recommended for unvaccinated individuals and children under the age of 12.

Follow physical distancing measures.

Please maintain at least six feet of space between your group and other guests throughout the Museum, including the Entry Hall, exhibit galleries, stores, dining areas, elevators and bathrooms.

Review food options for your visit.

Our Brain Food Court is open with salads, sandwiches and coffee beverages. Vending machines are available on Lower Level for snacks and beverages to enjoy in a nearby designated eating area.
