Unexpected Chicago: Off the Beaten Path Attractions

Chicago’s Museum Campus is an obvious choice for arts and culture: a trifecta of institutions clustered together on the lakefront. The Art Institute is a must-see as well and often tops the bucket list of Chicago attractions: it was one of TripAdvisor’s top three museums in the world in 2013, 2014 & 2015.

But with over 60 museums dotting the landscape, Chicago attractions come in all shapes and sizes. They’re also in the most unexpected places. Think a neglected bank turned community arts hub. Or a gallery housed in a mini Mag Mile castle. Or a museum set within a working bridge. Read on for details on these Chicago attractions just off the beaten path.
