  • The American Writers Museum is a must for any living in Chicago an or visitor to the city. I was very impressed with the museum. I had no idea what to expect, but the space was beautiful, interactive, and most of all fun. The museum had a special exhibit called "The Day the World Changed" that focuses on the impact of Chicago's writers. This is a must-see for anyone who loves books and reading! It offers a wealth of information. I highly recommend!!
  • I’ve now been to this museum twice and have been floored both times. You could spend all day in it! Every display is interactive and full of information about all kinds of American writers. This is a MUST for readers in the area.
