Exploring Chicago Neighborhoods,  museums,  random adventures

wndr museum

Recently a friend and I went to check out the wndr museum located in the West Loop in Chicago. We went to Chapter One of this new experiential museum which had a variety of exhibits and I must say, very different from the typical museum I’ve ever encountered.

It was truly an amazing experience that engaged all of your senses. For example, as we entered, we gave a poet a word and they created a poem for us to pick up on our way out. And I just loved the ginormous chalkboard with interesting pictures & clever quotes. Another favorite was a room where you walk amongst the clouds. There were so many exhibits it’s hard to describe them all. You just need to check it out for yourself.

NOTE: Make sure to check out the ladies restroom (sorry guys not sure what’s happening in yours) and hit the button even though it warns you not to.

Imagination is born in wonder. With this as a guiding principle, wndr’s immersive art activations inspire and delight through all the senses. The wndr experience is one in which the thoughtful curation of world-class art, work by provocative emerging artists, as well as guest-made artwork creates a dreamy journey that reveals the wonders of the world around you.

Home to Chicago’s first ever Infinity Mirror Room by iconic Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, wndr places works from Richard Prince, Barbara Kruger, and Alex Israel in conversation with thought-provoking, innovative technologies, and stunning interactive installations. Around every corner comes an opportunity to be creative, discover something unexpected, ask questions, and, most importantly, play.

We believe that, in one way or another, we are all artists. Our mission is to help you tap into your own, unmatched creativity.

We intend to disrupt your idea of a traditional museum experience. At the same time, we hope to inspire you to challenge the expected in all facets of your life. Put your creativity to work — question everything. wndr museum website

Chapter One of the wndr museum located in the West Loop in Chicago was super cool and I can’t wait to go back to experience Chapter Two. Which, by the way, is happening right now.

Tickets (available only online) are a little pricey $32 plus tax & fees but it was worth it. Highly recommended for all ages, seniors, adults & kids. Take public transportation since parking isn’t great.

Prepare to have your mind blown.

    Oh my gosh I’ve never been anyplace like this. And they’re employing a poet! We’re flying through Chicago at the end of the month – I wish we had a long layover to go check it out.
