We did it, Chicago! The wndr museum is here to stay.
The Instagram-friendly pop-up exhibition was intended to run for a short number of months with a Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirror Room installation as the central draw. But thanks to over 300,000 visitors just in this first year it’s been open, the wndr museum has reached equal popularity with the Museum of Contemporary Art and proven its worth in the Windy City. It was only a matter of time before Chicago initiated the crossover concept between art and science as an honorary member into our vast cultural scene.
Since everyone and their mother has been scrambling for the $32 tickets (they’re still typically sold out days in advance), museum designers have decided to give the whole place a makeover for Summer 2019 to attract even more of the Chicago art scene. The wndr museum will temporarily close on April 1 for renovations and reopen toward the beginning of summer.
But don’t worry — favorite hotspots like Kusama’s “Let’s Survive Forever” exhibit will still be around.
Tickets will continue to be released in their four-week blocks with designated time slots, but they will sell out quickly, so make sure to keep an eye out. If you’re in a rush to get inside before their close in April, they have plenty of open spots currently available.
The museum can be found in a mysterious, warehouse-like building at 1130 W. Monroe St. There is no onsite parking and, with limited street parking available, it’s best to find a spot at Chicago Parking Map.
