No one does Christmas quite like the Museum of Science and Industry. That’s one of the things I love so much about living in Chicago, the city really does go all out during the holidays. One of my favorite holiday traditions is visiting the Christmas Around the World exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. I’ve been visiting this exhibit since I was a little girl. Usually my school would take a field trip to the museum during December to see the exhibit, but field trip or not, my family always made sure to make a special trip to see this exhibit!
Even though visiting Christmas Around the World has been a tradition of mine for the last 23 years, it dawned on me that I’ve never dedicated a blog post to this festive exhibit! (Whoops, my bad!). So today, I wanted to share a few (who am I kidding this post has over 200 photos) photos from my visit a few weeks ago! Warning, this post is VERY photo heavy. So like Scar would say… BE PREPARED!
But seriously, there’s like 200 photos in this post. You have been warned…
Although Christmas Around the World is the main focus point at the Museum of Science and Industry right now, The Science Behind Pixar exhibit is still going on and I definitely recommend checking it out! (You can read more about that exhibit HERE!).
This annual holiday exhibit features over 50 trees and displays! Each tree represents different places and cultures throughout the world. Trust me, this exhibit is a must see. Just look at how GORGEOUS these trees are!

If you made it this far then I applaud you! If you’re in Chicago or the Chicagoland area, I HIGHLY recommend popping over to the Museum of Science and Industry one afternoon and exploring Christmas Around the World. Make sure to comment down below which tree was your favorite or what some of your favorite holiday traditions are!
