The Museum of Science + Industry Chicago is looking for someone to take on the once-in-a-lifetime assignment of spending a Month at the Museum—720 hours—plenty of time to explore the Museum’s 35,000 artifacts privately, and talk about living with them 24/7.
The only building remaining from the White City of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition—which celebrated the 400th anniversary of Christoper Columbus’s arrival in the “new world”—the 14-acre building is the largest in the Americas that’s dedicated to science. Opened in 1933 as part of the Century of Progress World’s Fair, today the Museum features 400,000 square feet of exhibit space and has hosted over 175 million guests over 75 years—but none like this.
Imagine experiencing all that lives and breathes within this Chicago landmark, living in spaces decorated with CB2 furniture and accessories, and sharing your experiences with the outside world via blogging and personal interviews. Check out the specifics here and get your entry ready for review soon—the deadline to qualify is August 11th!
