Before I retired from education, I planned student friendly trips to various places in the Chicagoland area. One of the treasures that I discovered was the Oriental Institute which is on the campus of the University of Chicago. The artifacts in this museum are spellbinding. And you will be so surprised at the bounty of artifacts this museum has. While this is a smaller museum than the Museum of Science and Industry, it also means fewer people. I have enjoyed this museum many times and had fewer people to contend with. Additionally, while you are on campus why not stop by Rockefeller Chapel and perhaps Jane Addams Hull House. Both are within a short distance and well worth seeing. Historically, this could be a treasure of a day for you.
