Get rid of your ideas of tired, dusty old historical exhibits. The Chicago Historical Society is a dynamic museum with lots of fascinating displays and programs that follow the stories of Chicago lives. This isn't about long dead presidents but about social movements and cultural trends, forces that shaped the city into what it is today. To illustrate this idea, a recent program featured former members of the SDS, a radical student movement of the 1960s and 1970s. This is not your grampa's museum.
