When wndr museum was unveiled last year it was initially labeled a "pop-up" exhibition, which suggested that the interactive experience wouldn't stick around Chicago indefinitely. Five months after its debut in the West Loop, the art- and science-inspired exhibition—which houses Chicago's first and only Infinity Mirror Room by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama—has revealed some of its plans for the future, announcing that wndr museum is here to stay.

Wndr museum's current exhibit, "FINITE/INFINITE," will close on March 31, making way for the next iteration of the West Loop attraction later this spring. The majority of experiences featured in the museum's next exhibit, entitled "TANGIBLE/INTANGIBLE," will be entirely new, offering plenty of reasons for previous patrons to plan a second visit. The museum's second show will likely open in time for the rush of summer tourists and will be announced via the venue's Instagram account.

One thing that won't be changing in wndr museum's next chapter is the presence of Yayoi Kusama's "Let's Survive Forever," the mirrored room that serves as the culmination of each guest's journey through the venue. If the sheer volume of Instagram photos from inside the work of art is any indication, the Infinity Mirror Room is the most popular part of the wndr museum and the primary reason why many attendees decide to snag a ticket.

The final block of tickets for wndr museum's current "FINITE/INFINITE" exhibit are on sale now, so you'll need to act fast if you want to see the existing collection of installations before March 31.
