An exploration of Chicago’s hidden and off beat museums.

Chicago’s rich and world-class reputation lend to a host of many great neighborhood and historical museums. In 2013,  the ChicagoMuseumBlog.com’s Destination Museums will explore Chicago’s history, artistic influence and the people that make up the spirit we know as Chicago.

Eccentric historical and artistic travel without the fuss.
