Studies in high school I went with my friends at the weekend to visit one of the famous Museum .The collection over there is excellent and very interesting to see an antique of sculptures, paintings, carvings, textiles, manuscripts, ceramics. A museum is an institution that cares for a collection of artifacts and other objects of scientific, artistic, cultural, or historical importance.

A really beautiful room. I've been here for press conferences, receptions etc. and it never fails to take my breath away.

The domed ceiling is beautiful, with light colored stained glass that lets in plenty of sunlight. It's so unlike many of the older European churches I have visited, with very dark and richly colored stained glass that tends to give the churches a kind of moody, almost foreboding (but still beautiful) vibe.

On the other hand, Preston Bradley Hall is so open, with large windows and an intricate tile floor. A great location for any type of event!

Pros: Beautiful stained glass and tile floors, Large space

We visited the Cultural Center today, and were not all that impressed. The building has beautiful architectural details, but the exhibits currently on display are sparse at best. The majority of the building contains offices and conference rooms, so you are left wandering all over, without a map. The woman at the information desk sent us to an administrative floor, and told us to "just wander through any open door." I'm just glad it was free...

While the other listings of Chicago's top free spots are outdoorsy type places, I have found the Cultural Center to have the best in classical music, lectures, art exhibits and other live shows. This is a must for poor students like myself and others who appreciate a well-rounded humanities event.

We visted there yesterday and had a wonderful time! While we were there to visit the Museum of Broadcast Arts specifically, we enjoyed the whole center! The building in and of itself is breathtaking.

The first time I arrived at the Cultural center I was about ten years old. I didn't want to walk on the floor because the mosaics were so beautiful. My feet, I thought we not worthy to walk on something so delicate. Then I looked up and saw all those little peices of glass in an awe inspiring dome over my head. As I walked to a huge room with floor to ceiling glass I viewed unifroms and priceless memorabilia from the civil war. I took my daughter there recently and was so dissapointed that the stairs were covered with cheap carpeting and the Civil war exhibit was now an empty room. This is still a place to stop, relax and realize there was an age of elegance, unfortunatly the remnants are being dismantled.

It's not exactly a barrel of laughs, but this place is fascinating for those interested in learning about Chicago's past. A great library with great historical texts.
