Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry: 19th Century Beaux-Arts Style
The building that houses Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry was built in 1893, originally as The Palace of Fine Arts for the World's Columbian Exposition.
The Museum moved into the building in 1926 after a $5
million restoration project. The building's original Beaux-Arts exterior was retained, but the
interior was replaced with an Art Moderne-style design.
