#5 of 125 Museums in Chicago
If you want to enjoy this hands-on, informative, awesome, one of the best museums in the world, then be there prompt and see as much as you can by noon or you’ll be inundated with kids.
This is hands-down my favorite museum, and I have visited the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, DC, and museums in other countries.

The Oriental Institute is one of the museums of the University of Chicago, housing its collection of Egyptian and Mesopotamian art and artifacts.
Away from the lines and the hype of the big Chicago museums is this truly awe inspiring collection of Egyptian, Babylonian, Assyrian, etc. artifacts.

(great bookstores, other museums, historic architecture {not just the Robie House}.
Sources from very large museums around the world again make an impact far greater than you'd expect.
