Chicago Cultural Center
In a city rich with cultural treasures, you might think we wouldn’t need a city-operation cultural center, but we do. We really do. Start with the building, and its spectacular interiors, including amazing mosaics and the world’s largest Tiffany stained-glass dome. But move onto its contemporary treasures, from the galleries of rotating art exhibits to the singular Museum of Broadcast Communications. Then take in its programming motherlode, from the Dame Myra Hess concerts held upstairs in the Preston Bradley Hall to the International Dinner and a Movie series. And best of all, most exhibits and programs are free.
