MSI’s Mold-A-Rama picked as one of the best Museum Exhibitions in the USA in 2023

Chicago‘s Museum of Science and Industry has one of the best 2023 museum exhibits in the U.S…

Lonely Planet released a list of The 10 best exhibitions not to miss in the USA in 2023. Toward the top of the list was MSI’s Mold-A-Rama exhibit.

Remember going to the zoo and getting plastic molded animals in each different animal den? The exhibit is dedicated to THOSE machines and molds. You can see an enormous collection of molded figures and try out several Mold-A-Rama machines.
