Admission includes access to audio tours, as well Railroaders: Jack Delano’s Homefront Photography, now through August 10, 2015. Exploring the little-known story of America’s railroad workers during World War II, this collection of photos from Office of War Information photographer Jack Delano chronicle the importance of railways to the homefront’s morale and livelihood. More than 60 photos–both color and black and white–take viewers from station to yard to car, telling the story of America’s transportation infrastructure and the vital role Chicago played as one of the country’s largest transportation hubs. In addition to the images themselves, visitors can dive deeper into history through interactive elements including subject biographies, a reproduction ticket window, and ambient sounds inspired by the noises of the day.

Admission also includes access to Unexpected Chicago, the exhibit that puts one special item from the museum’s collection on display for a limited run of two months. Past artifacts that have been displayed in this exhibit include Hugh Hefner’s little black book, John Hancock’s billfold, and a game-worn Scottie Pippen jersey from the 1998 championship series.

Student and senior discounted tickets are available but this Groupon still offers the best deal available. Children 12 and under are free.

Chicago History Museum

Founded in 1856, the Chicago History Museum upholds its legacy as one of the city's oldest cultural institutions with more than 22 million artifacts blown in from the city's storied past. Permanent exhibitions include Chicago: Crossroads of America, which sends visitors on a journey through a re-created jazz club and features a replica of an original L car and the monkey bars that its passengers hung from during commutes. Collections of dioramas detail the story of the city's growth from a barren nineteenth-century trading outpost to the bustling, youthful city that hosted the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. Exhibitions centered on Abraham Lincoln offer an in-depth look at his campaign and election in 1860, and Lincoln's Chicago shows visitors a vision of the city as the 16th president saw it: from 7 feet, 6 inches in the air.

    “For those interested in Chicago history, I would skip the first floor and go directly to the second floor where the most interesting Chicago history exhibits and information are displayed. The first floor has two rooms: the first contains dioramas of time periods and events in Chicago that are marginally interesting, certainly not a compelling display. The second room shows a politically correct perspective of the United States's incredibly racist, sexist, homophobic, and xenophobic history with little context. (Somehow, they missed ageism. Maybe the curators are young and not yet self aware of their ageist tendicies. Ahem.). The second floor has an absorbing temporary exhibit on railroading and its' impact on the US during the second world war. Also, there is a really cool blues exhibit. The rest of the second floor is also interesting with early Chicago history to recent history. A real streetcar, architectural history, products that were made, new products developed in Chicago are all on the second floor. There is also a gift store that is meh, and a cool coffee and snack area on the first floor. Overall, worth a visit. ”
