Chicago History Museum

4 years ago

Museums are something my kids enjoy because it`s educational and keeps them away from the sun and heat, LOL. I had no idea how close the museum was from Lincoln Park but come to realize it was pretty darn close to where we parked. It was just a 10 minute walk.

After sweating my butt off at Lincoln Park in this scorching summer heat, it was refreshing to be indoor where the temperature is cool and under control.

If I remember correctly, the admission fees were $12 per person and kids 12 and under are free.

So here`s a peak at what you will find inside the museum...

*A fancy car at the entrance of the building

*The American flag

*First copy of the Declaration of Independence and first copy of the US Constitution.

*Slave ID Tag

*A collar worn by slaves who tried to escape.

*Amputation tool kit used during the Civil War

*Things people carried with them to the Civil War

*A train

*Cellphones...then and now.

*A pretty dress made in the early 1900

*A Playboy custome created in 1972. Measurement of the model was 37.5, 23, 32, 5`2 tall and 98 lbs. All I gotta say is %&#@!!!! that`s only half of me, smh.

*There was an intereresting exhibit about magic! We even got a close up magic show. Couldn`t help myself but pose for this picture. I`ve always wanted to be levitated.

*Some magic secrets revealed!

There`s plenty to see and learn inside the museum. I was too tired to take much interest in anything so I just took a bunch of pictures.

Do you like museums? If so, which one have you visited and enjoyed? My favorite has got to be the Air & Space museum in Washington DC.
