Chicago History Museum *

Urban museum
With a new focus on the various different communities that make the fabric of Chicago, anyone looking for the Windy City's untold histories should pay a visit to the History Museum. The permanent collection has over 22 million artifacts, from fine prints to antiques, almost as diverse as the city itself. A new LGBT exhibit, OUT IN CHICAGO, will run from May 21, 2011.
