    We are two adults and we loved this place. So much to see- many historical items. And the u-boat was amazing. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The museum was clean and inviting. We had a wonderful time!

    From giant dinosaurs like Sue to cool stuff about ancient times, it's a super fun and interesting place. Great for families and anyone who loves cool things from the past. Definitely check it out!

    Fun, interactive exhibits where you learn something about human behavior and likely things about your own. Free and enlightening. Bright and friendly space. On MI Ave- across from Art Institute. Would be fun with a partner or friend group- gave us much to talk about. If there's time and you're inclined- you can participate in short research studies. We'll go back.

    This is a charming and quirky little museum just south of Lincoln Park. It's not very big, but the admission price is very affordable. If you have any interest in health sciences or medicine, this is a must see. I most enjoyed the different skulls in the cabinet of curiosities, but the jars of gallstones and kidney stones was also quite something to behold. Definitely recommend. You will come away having learned quite a bit about the history of medicine and the surgical sciences.
