Christmas Around the World Comes Back to the Museum of Science + Industry
Okay, I’ll be the first to admit that the Museum of Science + Industry isn’t the first thing that pops into my head when I think about Christmas in Chicago, but starting on November 15, it just might be.
Yes, MSI’s annual – and magical – Christmas Around the World exhibit starts next week and continues through January 6. Featuring trees, decorations, scenery, and more from across the globe, this holiday event allows Chicagoans to explore international traditions the likes of which they have never before seen.
Though the exhibit had humble beginnings in 1942, the centerpiece of this year’s collection is an enormous four-story, “floor-to-dome” Grand Tree, surrounded by a forest of uniquely decorated trees representing traditional holiday celebrations around the globe.
Head out to MSI most evenings later this month and next to sneak a peek at this holiday marvel or to watch nightly Christmas-themed performances, shows, and music.
For more information on the exhibit, the Museum of Science + Industry, and more, head to the MSI website.
