    The Chicago Museum of History has only two floors. It's not a big place and has plenty of exhibits. The city, which had been burned down by a fire in one third of its main urban area, now seems to be largely benefiting from that fire, which has led to urban renewal and reconstruction. If you walk around a circle, you will unconsciously think that this is such a magnificent city - in fact, it is an excellent expression of curatorial ability.

    Visit the Chicago Museum of History. Tickets are 19 dollars. Chicago's history must mention big fires. The fire lasted three days from October 8 to 10, 1871. Three hundred people died, nine square kilometres were burned and 100,000 people were homeless. Economic losses amounted to $220 million.

    This museum shows the history of Chicago City from the first arrival to today, mainly the most important historical fragments. It also shows the famous people who used to live in Chicago. A lot of animations and pictures impress you. Entrance ticket prices are also good value for money

    The Chicago History Museum is a museum that introduces Chicago's history, preserves and protects the remains of Chicago's major events. Near Lincoln Park, the exhibition is not very large. History museums in the United States pay more attention to the relics and remains of some important events in social life, as well as people's clothing, food, shelter and transportation in different periods. The Chicago Museum of History collects historical relics of Chicago, introducing Chicago's city-building and the famous Chicago fire; clothing and textiles, decorative arts and industrial arts, fine arts, prints and photographs of Chicago in various periods; and portraits of some Chicago celebrities from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century. There are special children's districts.

    The Chicago Museum of History, modern architecture, looks nothing amazing. It mainly displays Chicago, American history and objects. I especially like Civil War objects. The general museum is not big. It is free to visit, and there are lecturers for rent.

    我离开芝加哥前有一个小时的时间,所以我停下来做一个短暂的参观。 我希望我有更多的时间来探索!展品超级有趣,我发现自己想花大量时间阅读所有纪念匾的历史和信息。我学到的最有趣的事情是芝加哥这个名字的由来,他们有一辆非常酷的老式地铁车,你可以坐在这里。我唯一的抱怨(虽然我不觉得会有一个真正的解决方案)是在我试图独自探索的时候,被带领着走的旅行团非常大声,我被分散注意力。总的来说值得一去的地方!
