“Fun Reflections”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This giant chrome bean, is on a par with the Arch in STL. Although not nearly as big, the funhouse reflections as you walk around and under the Bean are great fun. Be sure to look up when you walk underneath. Take your picture with friends of the distorted images that change as you walk. Set in Millennium Park, there are restaurants and other sights to see close by.

“Funny!”

I am not sure what actually the Bean represents but it was just great fun for us. We enjoyed our funny reflections, the place is really lively.

“Fun place to "reflect"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Beautiful park - Millenium Park with "The Bean". Good place to take photos of your family and see the Chicago skyline in the reflection. Cool sculpture
