Take the museum campus bus 146 from downtown and then take the free shuttle out to the exhibit area. It’s a hike, but walkable.
Very small snack bar, but the sandwiches were good. A little pricey
Parking in the closest lot cost more than it said it would cost when I looked online. Not many options, so be prepared to pay whatever it costs. About $20.00.
Better experience when the exhibition isn't so crowded. If you have a choice, go on a weekday.
There's a small lot at the bottom of the drive, right by the entrance to the exhibit grounds. $20, same as the Adler Planetarium Lot, but couldn't be closer than in this one! Pay to Park machine.
if you drive, use the lot for Northerly island. Otherwise take the 146 bus. Either way, do use the shuttle. It's a long walk to the venue and 90 minutes on your feet (there are a few places to sit) once inside.
