Totally free to the public and very cool interior. In addition to the Tiffany dome, there are multiple floors of art exhibits and galleries.

Not much to see. Free but not worth the stop unless this is something your REALLY interested in.

The Cultural Center has a lot going for it - It is across the street from Millennium Park and the "Bean", great art and architecture, and it is free and weather controlled. We have gone a couple of times over the years of traveling and have always enjoyed the experience. Give yourself at least an hour to see everything, plus there are elevators, bathrooms and helpful people to answer questions about Chicago.
