World’s Fair Simulation at the MSI (Sat. 12/5 & Sun. 12/6)

Dec ’09Dec

Maybe it’s too early for the holiday craze to fully kick in, or maybe you’re already sick of it. The Museum of Science and Industry is offering a pretty sweet two day event for those ready to take a break from jingle bells.

On December 5th and 6th from 2-3:30 p.m. the MSI will present a virtual simulation tour of the 1893 World’s Fair (aka the Columbian Exposition or “The White City”, or the event that debuted the world’s first ferris wheel, take your pick).  Fun fact: the virtual tour will take place in the only exisiting building from the Exposition–The Museum itself!

This event is back by popular demand, so you know it will be pretty cool (but it’s offering more than before this time around). Plus, tickets the to tour include general admission to the museum, so you can relive a middle school field trip and hit some other exhibits too. Two birds, one stone.

You can call for tickets at (773) 684-1414
