Museum of Science and Industry

 

a cultural and educational institution in Chicago, USA. The museum was founded in 1926 by the American businessman J. Rosenwald, who modeled it after the German Museum. The museum’s exhibits demonstrate the latest scientific achievements and their applications in various branches of industry. Special rooms, with a floor space of 500–1,000 sq m, are set aside for exhibits devoted to particular subjects, such as the automobile, electricity, or hardwoods. Notable exhibits include a full-scale coal mine, an operating foundry, an atomic power plant, and a model farm with living quarters, a barnyard, a milking room, a silo, and a hatchery. Many large industrial companies and firms supply exhibits for the museum, which attracts several million visitors annually.
