This past weekend gave us just a taste of summer with temperatures in the 80s! Beautiful weekends like this make Chicago come alive and remind us why our city is so great. Even though we still have some time before it warms up for the summer, here are great outings to keep in mind for the chilly, raining weekends in between.
The Field Museum
Opened in March, Specimens: Unlocking the Secrets of Life will run until January 2018. In this Special Exhibit, wind your way through 30 million specimens and artifacts that scientists use and study to make new discoveries and explore our world.
The Tattoo exhibit has been extended until September 4, 2017, as it has been a huge success. This exhibit explores the meaning of tattoos, artistic styles, tools and global traditions. Live Tattoo Demos bring the exhibit to life – performed by master artists from all over the country.
