On my trip to Chicago I wasn’t planning on visiting but everyone I spoke to recommended it. I used the free app to guide me through.
Wear comfy shoes!

Do not try to take in everything in one day. There is just too much to see in this museum. The miniature room exhibit, which I have ignored in the past, was a lot more interesting than I had thought.

Just the right amount of mix to cater for everyone’s taste, spacious and welcoming. Queue we’re inevitable but well worth the art on show, I would have liked to have spent days in there.

My 12 and 14 year old loved this visit. We got museum’d out after about 4 hours. Good food and lots to see.
