Flex Pass

All the MSI that fits into your visit!

$49.95 adult | $29.95 children (ages 3 to 11)
Includes Museum Entry. Available onsite.

Flex Pass is a new ticket offering that invites you to experience MSI with flexibility in mind. With a Flex Pass ticket, you can visit the timed-entry exhibits, tours, experiences and films you want without having to select them when you purchase your ticket. Experience as much of MSI as you can fit in your day’s visit, at your own pace, deciding what experiences you’d like to try as you find them. (A few experiences are not included.)

How it works

Buy a Flex Pass ticket when you arrive at the Museum, and for the rest of that day’s visit, simply present the Flex Pass at the entrance* of the exhibit, film or experience you want to visit. You’ll be given the next available entry time, subject to availability and scheduling.

Flex Pass is accepted at these experiences:

You can also select experiences during your Flex Pass purchase at Museum ticket counters. Each eligible experience is limited to one entry per Flex Pass visit date.

* For WOW! Tour, Fab Lab or Future Energy Chicago, visit the Information Desk (Main Level 2).
** Free timed-entry experiences that also accept Flex Pass tickets.
