    Definitely check out the U-Boat exhibition! It's even worth the price to buy the tour so you can take a look inside the submarine!

    Every single time I'm in Chicago, I try to visit this museum. It's my favorite place to go here; I adore all the exhibits, plus it's totally kid (and family) friendly.

    All the features are very good, but the cost is very expensive,especially when you have more than one child. There should be more discounts, so that people with a certain income can take their kids.

    Get your special tickets early or run the risk of it being sold out for the day.
