What's up with the Smart Home at Museum of Science and Industry?

I snapped this photo of the former Smart Home exhibit last week at the Museum of Science and Industry 5700 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60637 (all photos Eric Rojas, Broker at Kale Realty)
The Smart Home exhibit (pictured above) at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago was a popular attraction from roughly May 2008 to January 2013.  It has been closed since. After taking this photo I wondered if the exhibit will open again and what might happen to the house otherwise.

I received an email response from the Museum stating there are "no current plans to reactivate the Smart Home exhibit".  We'll wait and see the fate of the Smart Home.  In the meantime here's an interesting story on the Smart Home written in 2012 from Lake Shore Magazine.
