The Museum’s permanent exhibition, Chicago: Crossroads of America, explores the city’s economy, crises, innovation, neighborhoods & entertainment. Features include Abraham Lincoln’s death bed.

DO NOT MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE A HOT DOG. Also, make sure you cop the souvenir penny documenting your said hot dog experience.

If you park in the lot get your ticket validated by the museum. You will only be charged $9 for parking, instead of $15, $20 or $28. You can stay in the lot all day, ticket is good until midnight.

Don't skip out on cafe. It is one of the best museum restaurants I have been to. Amazing gourmet burgers.

DePaul students get in for free. Soak in the vast history of Chicago and enjoy the rotating exhibits on the second floor.

Don't miss the 'neighborhood' movie and the Vivian Maier photo exhibit. I think they are the best part of the museum :)

Great concise overview of Chicago's history! Perfect for introducing kids to history museums (it's relatively interactive) and for those of us that want to get a feel for our new city :)

Make a Chicago e-postcard in the kids area and send it to your friends (even local ones). This area of the museum is fun for children and adults alike.

Thoroughly satisfying and engaging. The docents are knowledgeable and approachable and the exhibits are not just interesting but relevant. Must-See for history buffs!

Super informative and a good first stop for tourists! However, staff is not amazingly friendly and the exhibit layouts are somewhat confusing. However, the Vivian Maier exhibit is beautiful.
