Vermont has a museum dedicated to maple syrup and the National Mustard Museum in Middleton, WI has it followers so why not a pizza museum - in Chicago where we have New York, Detroit, New Haven, Quad Cities, Naples and Chicago style covered in a most delicious fashion. And what family has not relied on the cheesy pie at least a couple of times a week to quell hunger among the hangry troops? With exhibits that even the shortest attention span can focus upon, the museum aims to preserve and interpret pizza-related items in current and historical contexts: pizza-themed menus, pizza boxes, vinyl records, vintage ads, toys, video games, souvenirs, clothing and artwork, plus a museum gift shop. Check the web site for special events such as art activities, food demonstrations, pizza parties and food trucks parked outside of the museum. Entry is free but reserve your timed entry online.
