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

Later that day, a statement from the museum explained that military artifacts were being relocated from its 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 following morning, regular operating hours from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. resumed at the Museum of Science and Industry as scheduled. The museum had extended its hours for spring break, opening at 9:30 a.m. and closing at 5:30 p.m., with free admission expected on April 21 for Illinois residents only. More information about the unplanned closure can be found on the museum’s website from Wednesday onwards.
