Chicago Museum Winter Discount Days

Chicago Apartments, Museums, Winter Discount Days, Adler Planetarium

Chicago is quite an amazing city with so much to do and see, and our Museums are no exception. Even when winter strikes there are loads of fascinating attractions that cater to the indoors. From our 67 million year old T-Rex, live dolphin shows, and an extensive display of rare art, it’s no wonder why Chicago is a major destination spot.

What’s even cooler is that all Chicago Museums offer free days and discount days. For the really diehard fans you can also consider Chicago CityPASS or a Go Chicago Card. All museums are only about ten minutes from the Chicago Red Line and all offer parking. So let’s take a look at our winter Chicago Museum list!
