People think of MSI Chicago only as a world class science museum, but MSI Christmas Around the World is also one of the best Chicago Christmas activities.
This MSI tradition started in 1942 as a single tree with ornaments representing Allied countries showing solidarity during WWII.
This incredible Christmas display has expanded through the years to include over 50 trees representing holiday traditions around the world.
Educational displays also showcase holidays like Lunar New Year, Diwali, St. Lucia Day and more.
This year Christmas Around the World runs from November 17, 2021 to January 3, 2022.
You'll need 2 hours for Christmas Around the World or at least 4 hours for holiday and regular exhibits.
Visit Macy's, Christkindlmarket, or take in a stunning performance of The Nutcracker while celebrating Christmas in Chicago.
