    The Chicago Cultural Center is located at 78 East Washington Street, a road away from Millennium Park. When I came out of Millennium Park and saw a magnificent building opposite, the words "Chicago Public Library" carved on it were so striking that I decided to go over and look at it. At the entrance, I found that this is now the Chicago Cultural Center, not the library. But it's still free. Tourists can enter it freely. The interior of the building is also magnificent, with red carpet staircases and Roman archways. The whole decoration is very artistic. There are exhibitions, movies, music and theatrical performances. It's really the cultural center of Chicago. Of course, it is also good for tourists to use this place as a place for a short rest.

    This building has many uses in the past few years. Library, Gallery Exhibition space... I've been there at least 100 times. There is a free classical concert upstairs at noon on weekdays. You can also listen to WFMT radio broadcasts (they are all recorded) or come here to enjoy a small private space. Modern revolving art exhibitions often show the most advanced methods of operation, especially photography. Before experiencing a special trip, make sure that an art exhibition in the gallery is within the valid exhibition period, as well as the next exhibition time. There's also a gift shop and a big and good tourist information office.

    The Chicago Cultural Center is located in the center of the city. When I saw the appearance of the cultural center, I fell in love with it. The architectural design is really beautiful. The two large colored glass domes in the north and South are amazing. Modern art is mainly displayed in the cultural center. Various cultural activities are often held and visited free of charge.

    Half an hour's visit here, and it's free! When we went, there was a comic book exhibition. The mosaic on the wall was very beautiful! The Tiffany glass dome in the circular hall was very impressive! Go to the glass staircase to the east, and you can see Millennium Park from there! _________

    World's largest Tiffany Dome. It's quite breathtaking. The dome is best accessed via the stairway on the Washington Street side for the full effect. Free.

    Amazing turn of the century architecture. Hard to believe that it's located in a heartland city and not in Italy, Russia, or Hungary.

    Millennium Park is the Chicago Cultural Center across the street. It's a historic building. If you are interested in Chicago's historical process and cultural development, you can visit it. It's free of charge. It used to be a library, so the interior decoration is quite beautiful.

    There are amazing interiors and many free events and concerts, but it's a little odd that people walk through the room where you might be listening to a live concert. There's a library on the ground floor.
