Chicago Museum of History

It’s only a small museum, compared to some of the other wonderful options you have in Chicago, but it’s one worth a quick mention. The Chicago Museum of History has a few interesting exhibitions about the history of this surprisingly city. I must admit that prior coming to Chicago I knew very little about this city, aside from the general stereotypes, but after a few days it became clear just how wonderful Chicago is, far exceeding my expectations.
