Things to do in Chicago: See the MythBusters Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry

The extremely popular television show, Myth Busters,which has dedicated itself to explaining some of the world’s burning questions like, “Why does toast always seem to land with the butter-side down?” is coming to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, with a new exhibit opening March 15th. The Museum, which is located just 20 minute from our BEST WESTERN Midway Hotel, is a great place to bring the family for a fun day of entertainment and education.

The Emmy-nominated television show specializes in creating experiments that test clichés, and puzzles, proving and disproving popular myths and wild ideas the world over and their new exhibit is sure to live up to their exacting standards. This exhibit will no doubt be one of the most popular things to do in Chicago for visitors throughout the spring and summer (it runs until September) and we highly suggest checking it out along with all of the other great permanent exhibits that the museum offers.

This exhibit is considered suitable for all ages and is sure to be a highlight for the inquiring mind in all of us. Ever wondered if you stay drier walking or running through the rain? Or whether you can really blow a brick house down? The exhibit will answer these questions as well as incorporating:

  • Hands-on experiments
  • Props and gadgets from the show
  • Live demonstrations from “myth-busting” facilitators


The exhibit has an additional fee, beyond the regular museum entrance fees, of $10.00 per adult and senior and $8.00 for children aged 3-11. You can buy tickets for the exhibit in advance on the Museum of Science and Industry website or on the day of your arrival at the entrance.
