Disclaimer: My wife and I have always appreciated the beauty of stained and leaded glass, and she was a stained glass artist for several years so we probably appreciate the work and talent that goes into it more than other people. We went to the Navy Pier primarily to see this museum. We were surprised at how nice and large this museum is, especially considering there is no admission fee! There are a great number of stained glass windows in a long hall, most of them very beautiful, colorful and beautifully displayed. Many of them were rescued from houses and buildings from the Chicago area and are organized by architectural style. Some of the most extraordinary on display were made by Louis Comfort Tiffany and John LaFarge. My wife and I spent quite a while closely checking out some of those. Our 29-year old son walked through a little more quickly, but even he stopped to admire several of them.
