Cheri and I went to Cantigny park on Saturday. We were in the area dropping off a stereo to a guy I sold it to on ebay. He suggested we hit it up since we were in the area. He even gave us free parking passes. And we were glad he did, it was a very enjoyable. We originally went to walk the garden’s but ended up going to the First Division museum. In the museum, the went through each war that we have been in with displays, video and even some audio as you went through. The visuals were tremendous. And then outside the museum they have a bunch of different tanks sitting around that they allow the kids to climb on. There were so many pictures we took, if you follow my wife on facebook you can check them all out there. I’m going to post a bunch below as well but it would take me forever to detail each one. But here they are.
The rest were taken of displays of each war. The got jumbled when I saved them to my computer so it may jump back and forth between wars but you’ll get the idea.
And some pics of just a few of the tanks that were outside the museum.
Like I said, a truly unique and great experience. We are planning on making that trip again with the kids. Plus they have all kinds of events throughout the year. We are definitely going to the baseball game where they play with the rules and equipment of the 1800’s and there is a lego/train event next winter that we want to go. Check out the website and if your in the Chicago area, specifically Wheaton, IL. Check it out.
