“Pleasant Free Surprise”

Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows
Attraction details
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Just walking through Navy Pier and you will come across the Smith Museum of Stained Glass. Absolutely beautiful pieces of work from personal collections to commissioned pieces. These pieces are so well done and have survived the test of time. It's amazing to me that someone would think to hold on tho these as treasures. All of them hold their own distinct beauty. Best of all the attraction is free and is a great way to get out of the heat and enjoy something that not to many people see or care to look at as being individual pieces of art.

This was just an all around great visit. I love history and would bring anyone to see this. I will be back with more people that's for sure.

There was a variety of stained glass pieces, from religious to nature and whimsical. It is rare to see that many examples of stained glass up close, as they are often in churches several feet off the ground. In this museum you can see them up close, allowing you to see the details and intricacies. The exhibit is free and certainly worthwhile.

Some beautiful pieces. Lots of variety. See as much or as little as you want and then head out for a Cheeburger at the famous Goat Tavern on the pier and come back for more :)
