    The experience is amazing. You can expend a whole day if you want but 3 hours are enough. Thousands of paintings in contact with top artists around the world. With Citypass you do not require a pre booking. Pictures are allowed. MoMa and this one are my favorites in America.

    The park is gorgeous, and there's always something going on - from concerts to food trucks to buskers, it was so fun to walk through. I went three different days during a trip and there was always something cool to see!
    That said, the one caution I have that people can, frankly, suck. One person who worked at the park told me I couldn't have my DSLR camera. They couldn't tell me why, or what the rule was, and expected compliance; which, I didn't give and there were no problems. Some tourists also have no concept of how much physical space they inhabit and can disrupt the experience.

    We have a fun day in here, some of the teens were noisy but still, The Museum change a few areas since the last time a visited it. Check out the U-505 too as someone recommended it for me and it is increrible, so I'm spreading the love here. All the Science exhibit is wonderful too.

    A wonderful place to visit on a nice day. I stopped in Chicago for the day on my way out west. Chicago is an underrated city for shopping and beautiful lake views. Didn’t have time for the restaurants but would like to return soon

    I'm afraid of heights and thought that I can't do this: stand on 103rd class floor and look down. We had 90 secs time to stand on that floor and I sneaked there and looked down. Wow... I did it👍👍👍. Very proud of myself..

    What a view.... I recommend this experience👍
