1) Visit the Field Museum
The Field Museum is offering free days April 5-7 for all Illinois residents. Make sure you bring a state ID. (ONU students- you can bring a piece of mail with your campus address, but it is not always accepted.) Make sure to check out Sue (the most complete T-Rex skeleton ever found), the Ancient Egypt exhibit, and the Hall of Gems. For more information on exhibits and the Field, go to https://www.fieldmuseum.org/.
2) See SHAZAM!
DC Comics’ newest film features Zachary Levi as the title character, a young boy who revives the superpowers of history’s strongest heroes and uses those gifts to fight crime on a hilarious adventure.
3) Go to the Chicago Riverwalk
As the weather is warming up, take a walk up and down the Riverwalk and see the stunning Chicago River. If walking is not your speed, rent a Divy Bike (https://www.divvybikes.com/) and bike the path instead. For more information and a map of the Riverwalk, visit https://www.chicagoriverwalk.us/.
4) Visit the Garfield Park Conservatory
If the weather is not quite warm enough for you to hang outside, enjoy nature in the indoors at the Garfield Park Conservatory. Visit the Tickled Pink gallery and see all of the other galleries alongside it. Visit https://garfieldconservatory.org/ for more information.
5) Attend a Concert at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra
