Your Weekend Planner to Museum of Science & Industry Holiday Exhibits

Weekend Planner

Chicago is not the only place getting into the holiday spirit. Beginning Thursday, November, 14th, the Museum of Science & Industry will feature their Christmas Around the World and Holiday of Light exhibit. Explore how the rest of the world celebrates Christmas. This will be on display until January 5, 2020.

This annual tradition began with a single tree in 1942 and has since expanded into a four-story tree surrounded by a meticulously decorated forest of trees which display holiday traditions from around the world. This unique experience allows you to become immersed in holiday joy from every corner of the globe.  Be sure to come back or visit on a weekend so you can experience live holiday performances as well.

For more information visit the Christmas Around the World webpage on the Museum of Science & Industry's website.
