A Pizza Museum Is Opening In Chicago
If you enjoying eating pizza, you may want to make plans to visit the Pizza Museum which is opening soon in Chicago.
I'm a huge fan of pizza. My family jokes that I could eat it every day.
So, I'm pretty darn excited for the new "Pizza Museum" opening soon in Chicago.
According to chicagotribune.com,
"The U.S. Pizza Museum is getting a home at the Roosevelt Collection. The museum is slated to open August 10th in the mixed-use development in Chicago’s South Loop and is scheduled through the end of October."
Kendall Bruns is the museum founder. He started it in 2015.
It was originally set-up as a pop-up exhibit but it finally has a real home. At least temporarily. If the demand is there, the museum will stay open at that location longer. Maybe even permanent.
The exhibits will include
- Pizza art
- Pizza-themed clothing
- Pizzeria menus
- Pizza ads
- Pizza toys
- Pizza-themed magnets
- Pizza books
- Pizza records, such as “Let’s Have a Pizza Party” by The Gaylords.
The "Pizza Museum" founder has many other ideas including
- Museum store with pizza-related items
- Special events
- Art activities
- Book signings
- Dough-making demonstrations
- Pizza parties
- Mobile pizzerias parked outside of the museum
Sounds like this could become a big deal.
If you want to check it out for yourself, it's open Fridays 5pm - 8pm and Saturdays and Sundays 11am - 6pm.
The location is 1146 S. Delano Court West in the Roosevelt Collection.
