Museums and more!

number of exhibitions of visual art and view a classic or contemporary film at the Block Cinema. After a casual lunch at one of Evanston's exciting
eateries, right near the campus of Northwestern University, you can head to the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian to view a number of exhibits
featuring the diverse cultures and traditions of the Native Americans. Dinner will be served in one of Evanston's many popular restaurants.
Day 2 begins with a breakfast buffet in Evanston, followed by a visit to the Charles Gates Dawes House, home of former United States Vice
President, World War I Brigadier General, and Nobel Laureate Charles Gates Dawes. Each room of the house has its own "treasure bag" of objects
that the family might have left behind from the 1920s. Can you guess what each object is? A fascinating way to explore what artifacts can tell
us about the past! After a relaxing lunch, head to the Skokie North Shore Sculpture Park to explore this vast complex of contemporary artwork.
