Description

SOLD OUT!

The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, contains more than 35,000 artifacts. Many of them have never been seen by Museum guests—until now.

On Friday, October 21, explore some of the quirkiest artifacts kept in the Museum’s Collection during this adults-only party. Enjoy cocktails, food, music and sit in on an in-depth conversation, led by the hosts of WBEZ’s “Nerdette” podcast, as they learn about the history of some of these odd objects from MSI’s director of collections and head curator, Kathleen McCarthy.

Admission costs $25 and includes free underground parking, snacks, a complimentary cocktail, and access to our popular exhibits; Science Storms, The Great Train Story, Fast Forward, Genetics, Transportation Gallery and YOU! The Experience. A cash bar will also be available.

MSI After Hours: Oddities and Curiosities is a 21+ event and presented in partnership with WBEZ. Free special exhibition tickets to Above and Beyond, Brick by Brick and Numbers In Nature: A Mirror Maze are available on a first-come, first-serve basis when purchasing your ticket to the event.

The in-depth conversation, led by the hosts of WBEZ’s “Nerdette” podcast will begin promptly at 8:15 p.m.
