Hancock Observatory

Show your children the best view of Chicago from the top of the Hancock Observatory. The open air “sky-deck” will let you experience how windy this city really is. Children love the “sound-scopes,” novel little telescopes that not only show them the various sights below, but lets them hear everything as well. Visitors, who get squeamish looking down from 1,000 feet, might opt instead to study the History Wall, an interesting pictoral representing each phase of Chicago’s evolution from marshy nothingness to urban gem.
