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

During spring break, many students in Illinois visit the city’s museums, including the iconic Museum of Science and Industry. However, on an unexpected note, the museum closed for “unplanned museum maintenance” without prior notice. In a statement released by the museum, it announced that it would reopen for “normal spring break operating hours” the next day.

Later that day, a statement from the museum explained the reason for the closure. The museum had to relocate military artifacts from its archives as part of a routine procedure. To ensure a safe and proper relocation process, trained military personnel and local officials were on site during the removal process. Due to this, the museum decided to close to the public.

The museum confirmed that the relocation was complete and would reopen as scheduled on Wednesday morning. The museum had extended its hours for spring break and would be open from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm on Monday, April 8th. On this day, regular operating hours from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm were expected to resume.

Illinois residents can look forward to a free admission day at the museum on April 21st. More information about the unplanned closure can be found on their website on Wednesday evening.

In conclusion, while unexpectedly closing for unplanned maintenance during spring break season may have disrupted some students’ plans, visitors are excited about being able to return to one of Chicago’s top attractions soon enough!
