The kids in our family love coming to this place. Scitech’s purpose is to teach kids about science and technology in an engaging, hands-on way. It’s really fun – even for grown-ups – and keeps them preoccupied for hours. Last time we went they had “Dorothy,” the storm chaser vehicle you’ve seen on the news, on loan. The exhibit was based on storms and had a 10-foot tornado simulator. I recommend getting a membership; you get free admission to the Scitech and many other Chicago museums as well.
