It's Saturday Night!
Great display about the history of SNL with videos, artifacts, stage. Each area takes you through what happens each day leading up to the dress rehearsal, with audience and then the live show.

I would say 1 to 2 hours - depending on how in depth you spend reading each exhibit. Last weekend we attended a play at the museum relating to facts around the JFK assassination which was interesting. It is held in the evening and requires separate tickets. Enjoy your trip to our great city of Chicago.
