The Museum of Science & Industry was originally built as part of the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. The historic building has withstood the test of time… and yet every now & again, the World’s Fair returns to its home. If even for just one night & one big party! A stunning, draped canopy illuminates the rotunda and serves as the central focal point for the event. Throughout the surrounding halls, thematic buffet vignettes were pay homage to the many countries around the world that converged in Chicago that year for the Columbian Exposition; and the Chicago neighborhoods that grew from it. And who can forget some of Chicago’s most notorious characters?… the gangsters that ruled Chicago during the Prohibition Era.
