???????On June 21, 1893 the Ferris Wheel began giving rides to fairgoers, leading one reviewer to say “I have no desire to advertise the wheel when I tell you a trip upon it is worth taking. You cannot advertise the wheel, anyway, anymore than too big.”

More information and tickets can be purchased at the Field Museum website.

    Thank you ALL that came to The Field Museum today.

    It was a pleasure to meet you and get to know you. I was the guy in the kilt with the 1893 Columbian Exhibition books.

    You made a great day at the museum even BETTER and I hope you had a wonderful experience.

    Hope to see you again at the museum. We have some wonderful things coming up!

    All the Best,
