Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (July, 2011)

In previous trips we'd been to the Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium and were so impressed with those we didn't think Chicago could have any more great museums.  The Adler Planetarium looks ok, but we've not been.  But as we were digging around tourism sites we kept noticing things about the Museum of Science and Industry.

Now I'll be honest, between the "Industry" part of the name and the fact that is was a lot further south than the Museum Campus (Field/Shedd/Adler), I had dismissed this place before.  Big mistake.  It is REALLY cool!

What you see here is the Transportation Gallery with lots of trains, planes (a Boeing 727), and automobiles (a rocket car) and a lot more.
