Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry Wants to Let Someone Live There for a Month

Last fall, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois invited a woman named Kate McGroarty to be their “roommate” for about a month. For 30 days, the museum was her home. While she did not have to spend countless hours with talking statues or resurrected animals, she got to spend all her time discovering every little crevice of the museum and completely immerse herself in science.
