Ticketing

Watch for traffic near MSI due to nearby lane closures.

One southbound lane of DuSable Lake Shore Drive from 57th Drive to Hayes Drive is closed for roadway work related to the Obama Presidential Center. This may cause slowdowns near the southbound 57th Drive exit toward MSI, so allow a little extra time if driving or taking CTA express buses. Visit the CDOT site for more info.

Masks are still required in some Museum areas.

While MSI will no longer require guests to wear masks to enter the Museum, those exhibits, classrooms and lab activities with limited space for physical distancing still have mask requirements. These include the U-505 On-board Tour, Coal Mine, Dissect an Eye at MSI, and the Wanger Family Fab Lab.

In spaces that require them, masks will be provided and are required for everyone ages 2+ regardless of vaccination status. They must be worn to fit snugly and fully over the nose and mouth for the entire time in the space. If you do not follow these mask guidelines, you will not be permitted in such spaces.

If you are unable to medically tolerate a mask and need a mask exemption, please inform the staff at the entry of these spaces who will provide you with an exemption form to complete.

Know before you go.

If you haven't already, please review Know Before You Go for our current policies and procedures for guests.
