Tips

  • Traveling with kids? Splash around in the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park before attending a free family lecture, workshop or tour. -- Green Guide Editor
  • Amazing structure by Chicago architecture firm Krueck & Saxton
  • Great place to cool off on a hot day. How many faces appear on the monoliths?
  • Bring a plastic bag for your phone and wallet. The more time you spend here, the more likely things will get wet.
  • Very attractive place.
  • Wikipedia: "Interactive ... public art and video sculpture featured in Chicago's Millennium Park. ... Designed by Catalan artist Jaume Plensa and executed by Krueck and Sexton Architects." Fun 4 kids!

  • When I visited it, it wasnt working. However, I think its really special place that has to be visited for sure since its very close to the cloud gate.
