Museum of Science and Industry
More touristing for us. We took my brother and his girlfriend to the Museum of Science and Industry over the weekend. My favorite parts of the museum are the chick hatchery and the miniature version of Chicago, complete with moving el cars. There is so much to see at this museum - you'd probably have to stay there for a whole weekend to really see everything. The museum building itself is pretty neat. It was built during the 1893 World's Fair and is the Fair's only remaining structure. It's in the diverse Hyde Park neighborhood, which is also home to the University of Chicago. Barack Obama actually used to live nearby. Definitely worth a visit if you're in town.
