Chicago History Museum

Interesting
Want to delve deeper into Chicago's past? Then don't miss a visit to the city's oldest cultural institution (1865), which takes you through the history of Chicago from its beginnings, thanks to a multitude of documents and "dramatisations". "A New Life in America" covers the emblematic destiny of the Pritzker family, who arrived from Kiev in the 1880s, fleeing the pogroms. The permanent exhibition "Chicago: Crossroads of America" portrays the city through different installations.
