Illinois Has Many Great Museums

Even if you are not exactly a "museum" type person, I still think it is a common fact that there are many great ones in Illinois. For example, there is the Field Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Science and Industry to just name a couple. They are probably my two favorite but there are so many more fantastic ones to experience. Some you might have never heard of before.
