Any must-do things to do or see between 9 and 9 in the Windy City?

The Science and Industry Museum is way cool.

So is a stroll up Michigan Avenue to enjoy the fabulous architecture like the gothic façade of the old Chicago Tribune building (they saved it) and the impossible-looking mushroom medical center. Fort Street in the evening hours (unless it is too windy). Watch out for revolving doors. I got mugged in one at Union Station.

Thanks for the suggestions, all.  I’ll confer with my wife and we’ll decide which of these are a fit for our time.  Appreciate the input.
