Chicago History Museum
We recently made a trip to the Chicago History Museum. The kids were fascinated by the Facing Freedom exhibit, learning about the people who fought for equal rights, from the time of slavery to the Japanese internment to women's suffrage to workers' rights.
They also liked climbing onto the fancy old L car and learning about the details of the Chicago Fire.
The highlight of the visit was the amazing balloon artist, who made simply fabulous and creative designs.
Overall, it was a worthwhile trip and a good learning experience for the kids.
