Museum of Science and Industry

On Saturday, we went to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. Our plan was to stay no longer than two hours and that is what we did. Our other plan was to see the inside of the submarine, but unfortunately, the tickets were sold out.

We haven't visited the submarine since they moved it inside three years ago and added a whole new WWII exhibit. So, we were still in for a treat.

A volunteer latched onto us immediately and when he found out this was an interest of Alexander's, he walked us through several of the exhibits. He said, "You will know more about torpedoes than anyone in your school." I laughed and told him Sophia was the only other one in our school and he already knew more about torpedoes than her. We really appreciated the time this volunteer spent with us! It definitely added to our visit.

A very small kitchen. They displayed a list of food carried on a submarine for 100 days.

Sleeping arrangements do not look too comfy.

Overall, we enjoyed getting out and learning some new things over the weekend.
