MU­SEUM OF SCIENCE AND IN­DUS­TRY TO OPEN AUG. 1

Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS - —Ste­fano Es­pos­ito

The Mu­seum of Science and In­dus­try is set to re­open Aug. 1 af­ter be­ing closed for more than four months due to the coro­n­avirus. Ad­mis­sion will be free for the first two weeks.

But not ev­ery­thing will be open to the public, in­clud­ing the in­side of the U-505 sub­ma­rine and the coal mine ex­hibit. Mu­seum of­fi­cials say they’re keep­ing those places closed to “re­duce con­tact.” The ex­hibits sur­round­ing the sub­ma­rine will be open to the public.

The mu­seum will have a daily ca­pac­ity of 2,000 vis­i­tors. “High touch” ar­eas are to be dis­in­fected hourly, of­fi­cials said.

Vis­i­tors must re­serve a timed-en­try ticket on­line at msichicago.org. For now, the mu­seum will be open Wed­nes­day through Sun­day, of­fi­cials said.
