Rebecca Starodub – Ritz Carlton Chicago
I love taking a guided tour at the Richard Driehaus Museum. It is a gilded age mansion that is full of antiques, Tiffany glass, and some of the original furniture from the house. They use the bedrooms to showcase interesting exhibitions. Their tour guides do a great job of explaining the history of the house and how it fits into Chicago’s history as well.
