What to do on a rainy day in chicago

Spend time at the museum
Chicago has a wide range of museums. From the Art Institute to the Field Museum, the city has something for everyone. Whether you're interested in modern art, historic art, or Egyptian art, there's a museum for you.

Go inside a beautiful Chicago building

The Chicago Cultural Center is a stunning architectural gem that's perfect for any rainy day in the city! It's free to visit and contains many fun indoor activities for the whole family.

Play the piano or sing to your favorite sheet music in one of the personal practice rooms at the Harold Washington Library, which also has a cafe, meeting spaces and other fun activities. You'll find the entire building to be filled with historical relics, books and more.

Build with LEGOs

If you have kids and you're a fan of building, you have to check out LEGOLAND (or, if you're feeling adventurous, it's also a short drive outside of the city in Schaumburg). This massive indoor attraction is filled with everything from building stations guided by Master Model Builders to rides like the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride.

See the city from the sky

For the best views of the Chicago skyline, try 360 CHICAGO or Skydeck Chicago. Both are located in the John Hancock Observatory on the 94th floor and offer breathtaking panoramic views of Chicago, Lake Michigan and parts of Indiana and Wisconsin. The best part is that both attractions have an extra-thrilling experience, such as TILT at 360 CHICAGO, where you literally lean 30-degrees outside of the building over the street.
