Chicago Historical Museum

The Chicago Historical Museum is the place to go if you want to know about some of Chicago’s great history! An exhibit called Sensing Chicago allows children of all ages to discover the sights, smells, and sounds of the city of Chicago. Kids can ride a high-wheel bicycle down a wood-paved street, explore history through their nose with a smell map, be a Chicago-Style hotdog, and even catch a fly ball at Comiskey Park! There is something for everyone to do at this creative and fun filled museum! Learn about the Great Chicago Fire by using an oversized map, icons, and first-hand accounts to trace the path the devastating fire took and hear the sounds it made as it devoured building after building after building. This museum makes for a fun place for anyone to visit! A permanent exhibit called “Chicago: Crossroads of America” has a series of galleries, interactive features, and multimedia presentations. Your educational travel group may even get the change to climb aboard a train car! In the past, there have been showings of photographers as famous as Vivian Maier’s, who took phenomenal photographs of everyday life in urban America that wowed the world! This photographer had a way of taking pictures without the subject even realizing they were being captured in a work of art! Your educational group tour will get the incredible opportunity to see the reactions of people to horrible tragedies as well as the advancements that lead to the Chicago we know today!
