Where in Chicago are kids actually encouraged to touch things?

The Museum of Science and Industry is inviting Chicago-area children ages 3-11 to do just that with free admission till the end of February.

“We play a large role in the community,” said spokeswoman Renee Mailhiot, noting that a Legos exhibit is coming in March. Mailhiot said they aimed to make sure more hands-on science knowledge is accessible to everyone.

The museum is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day this month. Every adult ticket purchase can redeem up to two free kids’ tickets.
