Chicago's North Shore has long had a reputation for being a hotbed of culture, artistic appreciation and intellectual engagement. As a longtime North Shore Realtor, I can attest to the sense of community that the many cities that make up Chicago's North Shore offer due to their focus on arts, culture, entertainment, activities and events. While the nearby City of Chicago offers dozens of great museums, the North Shore features quite a few as well! Here are just a few of the popular museum hotspots throughout the area:
Kohl Children's Museum
2100 Patriot Blvd., Glenview
The unique Kohl Children's Museum offers a hands-on learning environment for youngsters. With exhibits built for children of all ages, from vehicle care and safety to a pet veterinarian office, the museum is both engaging and educational as well as fun and interactive. The museum also offers art, science and math activities that kids complete at the museum and take home. Regularly scheduled drama, fitness and science programs and workshops are also available as well as story time.
Illinois Holocaust Museum
9603 Woods Dr., Skokie
The 65,000 square foot Illinois Holocaust Museum is an incredibly powerful space designed to preserve the legacy of the Holocaust and remember those that were lost. Visitors can learn firsthand about pre-war European life, concentration camps, the liberation and subsequent resettlement around the globe. Featuring artifacts, photos, documents and other items that have been transported through the generations, a visit to the Illinois Holocaust Museum is an educational and powerful experience that is not to be missed!
Block Museum of Art
Northwestern University, 40 Arts Circle Dr., Evanston
Northwestern University's very own museum of art offers exhibitions, collections, film screenings and cultural programs and workshops for students as well as the general public. For those that enjoy fine art and culture, the Block Museum of Art is the place to be. Artists in their collection include Mary Cassatt, Andy Warhol, Honore Daumier and more - With such diverse offerings and frequent events, art lovers and appreciators will feel at home here!
