ORIENTAL INSTITUTE & CHINATOWN CHICAGO DAYTRIP


Saturday, March 21, 2015

8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

Visit the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago, which offers a glimpse into the beginnings of civilization with its world-class collection of artifacts from the ancient Middle East (10,000 BC - AD 650). These lands were called the "orient" at the turn of the last century because they were located on the continent of Asia.

Many of the artifacts were excavated by Oriental Institute archaeologists, eager to unearth the past and preserve these treasures from Egypt, Turkey, Persia, Syro-Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and Nubia. Stop at the Suq shop for books about the ancient world and gifts from today's Middle East.

The Rockefeller Chapel and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House can be seen nearby on the University of Chicago Campus.

Then it's on to Chicago's bustling Chinatown to enjoy lunch on your own and stroll among the specialty shops on Wentworth Avenue before returning to Milwaukee.
