If you're interested in delving deeper into Chicago's past, don't miss a visit to the Chicago History museum, the city's oldest cultural institution (1856). The museum takes visitors through the history of Chicago from its beginnings, thanks to a multitude of documents and exhibits. The emblematic stories told include that of the Pritzker family, who arrived from Kiev in the 1880s, fleeing the pogroms. The permanent exhibition "Chicago: Crossroads of America" portrays the city through different installations.
