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

During spring break, many students in Illinois take the opportunity to visit Chicago museums, including the Museum of Science and Industry. However, unexpectedly, the iconic spot closed for “unplanned museum maintenance.” In a statement, the museum announced that it would reopen for “normal spring break operating hours” the following day.

The reason for the closure was not immediately clear, but a later announcement from the museum explained that military artifacts were being relocated from the museum’s archives. As a precaution, trained military personnel and local officials were on site during the removal process. The museum decided to close to the public to ensure a safe and proper relocation.

The museum had extended its hours for spring break, opening at 9:30 a.m. and closing at 5:30 p.m. On Monday, April 8, regular operating hours from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. were expected to resume. In addition to this news, Illinois residents can look forward to a free admission day at the museum on April 21. More information about the unplanned closure can be found on the museum’s website on Wednesday.
