Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago) Report Abuse
It is most prized because of its intellectual partnership with the elite University of Chicago. Holds the only German Submarine in the Western Hemisphere in an interactive exhibit. Has an interactive 21st Century permanent exhibit exploring the functions and abilities of the human body, a large interactive exhibit on the forces of nature and laws of thermodynamics, electricity, wave properties, gravity and others. Also holds the Zypher, America's first train. All of this and more in one of Chicago's most profound architectural behemoths.

Academy of Natural Sciences - Natural History Museum in Philadelphia Report Abuse
The Academy opened its doors to the public in 1828. Here, the mysteries of nature were revealed, its chaos organized and labeled in Latin and Greek. The collections expanded so rapidly-through gifts, purchases, and exchanges as well as expeditions—that the Academy outgrew its building three times in sixty years. In 1876, its present home was built at 19th and Benjamin Franklin Parkway—then the outskirts of town, and now the heart of Philadelphia's cultural district. With the opening of the new building, the Academy became a modern museum with areas for exhibitions and public lectures.
