Let your mind be blown in this amazing pop-up museum that features out-of-this-world, interactive exhibits, such as the Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirror Room. Get a group together and experience different rooms within one location, all of which transport you to another state of being and make for a great album of seflies.

You can purchase tickets in advance online, and there’s an option to reserve group tickets, as well.

“Imagine the Moon” at Adler Planetarium

Love space? Did you want to be an astronaut when growing up? Well then the exhibits at Adler Planetarium will turn those dreams into a reality, at least for a few hours.

The new sky exhibit at the Adler Planetarium sparks imagination and creativity as it discusses the human interaction with the Moon and all its beauty and wonder. If you’ve ever glanced up at the moon on a dark evening and wondered about its different shapes and colors or what walking upon it might be like, this exhibit will take you on a wild ride and answer those questions for you.

“Art on theMart”: New Spring Program

On the south façade of the Merchandise Mart right along the Riverwalk, there will be a new “Art on theMart” program to feature public art-video displays, which will last as a permanent exhibit for at least 30 years with the city. (There is a signed contact.) Yet first glance will be this spring in March! You’ll be able to take in the sights from Upper Wacker Drive and along the Riverwalk.

“Wired to Wear” at The Museum of Science and Industry

Opening March 21 at The Museum of Science and Industry, this new exhibit will look at how fashion and technology have fused together to create extraordinary and innovative pieces that are on trend and functional works of art.

An example? You might find running jackets with pockets to keep earbuds secure to make your run more efficient and enjoyable.
