Chicago summer museum exhibits
What to see and do at Chicago's best museums.
Pet a stingray, view a giraffe's innards, jet off on an extraterrestrial voyage—and all within an afternoon at the city's major museums this summer. The Museum of Science and Industry turns the big 8-0, the History Museum celebrates 50 years of the Ebony Fashion Fair and the DuSable marks the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation with a pair of Civil War reenactments. The other great things about museums in the summer? Two words: air conditioning.
