Step inside one of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama's famous Infinity Mirror Rooms at this pop-up exhibition, which features installations that blend art and science. The latest "chapter" of wndr museum features a lineup of new installations (giving previous visitors a reason to come back), focusing on works that utilize technology. Among the new experiences are a room lined with LED walls that guests can "draw" on with water, a series of abstract shapes that guests can project images onto and an interactive dance station that replicates and manipulates your moves on a screen. You'll also find a two-story rainbow slide and murals by local artists Mac Blackout and Lauren Asta. The latest iteration of wndr museum will stick around for "limited, yet undetermined amount of time," so squeeze in a visit while the current batch of installations is on display.

Pure magic - Not only is this the 'grammable spot that dreams are made of, but I actually learned quite a bit. The guides let you in on the science behind the exhibits making it a cool afternoon for friends or even those with kids. There are enough installments to keep you busy during the whole time of your appointment. The Infinity Mirrors room was definitely cool, but it wasn't even my favorite part - there are so many awesome rooms that you should definitely not sleep on! Happy they're staying in Chicago through January - Go check it out while it's here!

Such a magical experience! Being able to explore, touching and feeling, tasting and posing for pictures, felt like we were part of the art. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was so engaging and perfect for all ages. My 7 year old daughter was my plus 1 and I didn't know if that was a bad idea or not until we got there and she became mesmerized. It was the perfect mommy/daughter date. We got to sneak into the bathroom for a surprise dance party. The way you got to express yourself throughout the exhibits was both a thrill for my daughter and a joy for me to witness. We laughed, danced, shared a special memory that I can look back on from all of the awesome instagram worthy photos I was able to get. The staff was so helpful and friendly. I really cannot say enough nice things about the staff there. They took our picture, attended to my daughter, engaged and pointed out things to see and do. It was a lovely experience. I would highly recommend it.
