See the world's largest Tiffany stained-glass dome. It was initially built for dual purposes. It was the city's central library and a monument dedicated to the Civil War's Grand Army of the Republic. Since 1977 the building has housed cultural entities that included galleries, an auditorium, and the city's office of cultural affairs. The building architects are Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge.
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.
