Host Chief’s Night in Glitzy 118-Year-Old Chicago Landmark

The interior of the Museum of Science and Industry

Stand in the same building that attendees of the 1893 World’s Fair did 118 years ago when you attend the perennially popular IACP Host Chief’s Night on Monday, October 24, in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. The largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere and home to thousands of exhibits and artifacts is the last building remaining from the 1893 World’s Fair.

See your heart beat 13 feet tall. Climb aboard a World War II German submarine. Work alongside robots in a toy factory. Take a tour of your digestive system. Plunge into a working coal mine. Stand inside a 40-foot tornado. Dissect an eyeball. Step into the future. These experiences and more await guests in the Museum of Science and Industry.

The original, Greek-inspired structure of the museum, which includes three pavilions and Ionic order columns, was constructed as part of the White City at for the World’s Fair. Today’s museum is home to exciting and interactive exhibits that Host Chief’s Night attendees will still be buzzing about long after the evening is over.

Transportation will be provided to and from official conference hotels. Tickets are included in full-conference registration.
