Museum of Science and Industry

Museum of Science and Industry

When I was in Chicago in the beginning of the month I went to Jackson Park for the first time. I went to do a free walking tour of the grounds of the 1893 Columbian Exposition given by Friends of the White City. I got down there almost two hours early and explored around the Museum of Science and Industry. I didn’t go in the museum, but it is the most beautiful place I have seen in any city I’ve been to. Plus, it was a really beautiful day out while I was down there.

The above card doesn’t look too exciting, right? There’s also a card on my post of Jackson Park from 2011 here. But below are pictures I took while I was there.

View of the back of the museum. While I was standing on the steps of the building I ran into a security guard who was telling me more about the museum, and he said they do events out there.

Close up of back with what I am calling “statue columns” are. They were also along each side of the building.

Clearly, non-photographic postcards don’t do the museum justice. A quick refresher on the museum that I also had in my other post- this was the Palace of Fine Arts during the 1893 Columbian Exposition. Before becoming the Museum of Science and Industry 1933, it was the Field Museum of Natural History.

    I think it looks nice in some postcards. I have this one from 1906.
