Really informative about historical, modern and contemporary writers. Despite the small size I easily spent 3 hours by myself because I read most of the descriptions. Which, let's be honest, is what writers want us to do when visiting a museum curated for them. Highly recommend.

Great small interactive museum. One of the special secrets of Chicago. The use of actual typewriters is so cool for kids and adults.
