The cloud gate in Millennium park is a unique work of art.. It a must see attraction during your visit in Chicago.

Tourist attraction for sure but it is very cool to stand underneath the sculpture and see your reflection.

I so enjoyed walking around and under "The Bean" as many people call this. I got some interesting pictures pointing up from under the sculpture. The pictures looked artistic to me, producing many facets.

We happened to be walking by so we walked over. As an essential must see? Nope. Chicago has so much to offer and this would not be on my recommended must see for anyone. But, if you are nearby - then sure swing on over...More

Such a simple concept that is just beautiful. It reflects not just the people near it, but the sky above and that skyscrapers across the street. Definitely not to be missed!

We took photos at dusk & the mirrored effect was beautiful. Lots of people around but you could wait for the crowd to thin out a bit and get some really nice photos.

A must see, of course, but a visit here must be accompanied by a short walk to Crown Fountain. During the warmer months, watching the diversity of children playing in the water is like watching the 'melting pot' in real time.

Cloud Gate located in Millennium park is easily the most famous free thing to see and explore in Chicago, its a fun thing to wander around and underneath to get different views, always busy.

There is a large parking garage under Millennium Park that would be most convenient. If you park at the north end, closer to Randolph, you'll come out of the garage closer to the Bean. I always use Spot Hero for prepaid... More
