NBC Chicago reports on the reasons behind the closure of a well-known Chicago museum on Wednesday

During the spring break, many students in Illinois flock to the city’s museums. One of the most popular spots among them is the Museum of Science and Industry. However, on one unexpected day, the museum announced that it would be closed for “unplanned museum maintenance.”

The reason behind this closure was later revealed to be due to military artifacts being relocated from the museum’s archives. To ensure a safe and proper relocation process, trained military personnel and local officials were present on site during the removal. As a result, the museum decided to close its doors to the public.

However, good news came when the museum announced that they had successfully completed their relocation efforts. The museum reopened as scheduled and resumed its extended spring break hours of 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. On Monday, April 8, regular operating hours from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m were expected to resume.

In addition to their regular hours, Illinois residents can also look forward to a free admission day at the Museum of Science and Industry on April 21st. More information about the unplanned closure can be found on their website
