On Thursday, we met Cindi and her family at the train station, and went to downtown Chicago. The Art Museum is free the whole month of February (nice surprise!) so we spent the evening there. In the basement is an entire room of miniature rooms from different eras. Here's Mom standing next to a room. Here's what the inside looks like. The detail is incredible.
The kids all did great at the museum. Note to self - go to art museums on the first day of a trip, before the kids are sick of museums. Jonathan was as fascinated with the icicles as the art!
Jonathan and I enjoying the Egypt section.
None of us really got the modern art. Here's Jack's favorite.
Similarities???? What a famous piece. I, of course, remember it from Ferris Buehler's Day Off.
