Close-up of a pair of hands holding an index card with the word "KUBIK" written on it. At the Museum of Science and Industry, museum president Maj. Lenox Lohr leads Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, and Governor William Stratton through the RCA Color Television exhibit. The group stands before cameras and appears on a color television monitor. Lohr then guides Queen Elizabeth to a telephone, which plays back her voice as she speaks into it. An amused Prince Philip joins in.
A crowd of spectators is held back by a barricade and two security guards at the Harvester Farm exhibit; one tries to catch a glimpse of the Royals through opera binoculars. Lohr leads Queen Elizabeth II and the group to a display featuring farming equipment including a tractor. The group enters the Yesterday's Main Street exhibit, then heads to the Baby Chick Hatchery.
