    The Museum of Science and Industry will stay open during the NATO Summit.

    Days before the NATO Summit, Chicago closures seem more abundant than openings.

    Except for the Museum of Science and Industry.

    Unlike some other large local mainstays, the Hyde Park museum announced it not only will stay open this weekend, but it will try and entice visitors with a buy-one-get-one offer Saturday through Monday.

    The museum, located five miles south of the Museum Campus security zone, will remain open 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. With the purchase of one adult general admission, museum goers can an adult general admission ticket free. General admission tickets are $15 for adults.
