Chicago – Day 2

Our first full day in the city, and our plans were to head to the Museum of Science and Industry. I figured that it was going to take a full day to really go through it, so we didn’t plan to do anything else. The museum was amazing, and not nearly as crowded as I thought it would be considering that it was spring break for lots of the schools. The first thing we did was slowly browse our way over to the U-505 exhibit. We did the guided tour and really liked it. The sub’s in great condition, with only minor modifications to accommodate tours. After that we grabbed some lunch and browsed more of the exhibits before doing the coal mine tour. That was an interesting immersive tour through coal mining technology. From there we did a little more browsing, checked out the Tesla coil, and a few more things, then caught the bus back to the hotel. Dinner was a return to the Elephant and Castle, then we sacked out.
