One way to beat the winter blues is to experience Chicago in all its glory. February is a fantastic month to visit a museum. As an Illinois resident, museum free days are a perk happening all over town this month. Visit some of the greats – The Art Insitute of Chicago, Museum of Science & Industry, Field Museum – and the treasured – DuSable Museum of African American History, National Museum of Mexican Art, Loyola Museum of Art (LUMA). There are so many choices this month, so get out and explore more!
Others to Try:
  • American Writers Museum
  • Swedish American Museum
