Wonderful museum! We only had an hour to drop in but we’re able to at least see a few quick exhibits. We would love to go back and spend more time there!

Very cordial. Highly educational. Only objection was overlooking Ayn Rand who in fact invokes history of Chicago architecture in The Fountainhead.
