“Very cool”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We come to Millennium Park to see Cloud Gate aka the bean several times a year. I think it's a gem in the heart of Chicago. The whole park is incredible and the bean is awesome. The views all around it are great. My kids love laying under it and taking pictures with it. If you're going to spend time for downtown Chicago, then definitely make your way over to Millennium Park.

“Always amazing”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

3rd visit, in all seasons you have to check out the bean. Take photos from all angles and see the reflections of great architecture all around.

“fun for children”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I tried to explain this attraction to my grandchildren and they couldnt grasp the concept. But they cheerfully followed me as I led them to it and they were thrilled wth it. They laughed as they found themselves in the reflection and took pictures from many different angles. It was a cold day but they agreed that it was worth braving the elements to see this unusual structure.

My daughter wanted to see the Bean and it was really cool. Millenium Park is beautiful. We are looking forward to returning in the summer.

“So much fun”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Not only is it a sight to marvel, it's also so much fun to watch people play in, around and under the cloud gate. Great addition to an already fantastic stretch of downtown Chicago.
