    Restrooms on lower level on Michigan Ave side are closed for renovation! Yay. Aim for Modern Wing street level entrance if that's your first stop. 😳

    Miniature throne rooms are my favorite! A collection of interiors through the ages. It's a must see. Go right to the basement. It's under the grand staircase in the main entrance. First place I go!
