Inside the Navy Pier is this wonderful museum with FREE admission - a permanent collection of over 150 stained glass windows and doors, including some made by Louis Comfort Tiffany and John LaFarge, and some made in Chicago. A beautiful display, easy to maneuver, includes several "specialized" alcoves displaying the work of Tiffany, and religious scenes to name a couple.

I loved this and was totally captivated - I took over 80 photographs in the museum...
