Start your tour of Chicago at Millennium Park, considered one of the largest roof gardens in the world. Sitting atop a railroad yard and a network of underground parking garages, the park features several artistic highlights, most notably the popular "Bean," a legume-shaped, stainless-steel sculpture designed by artist Anish Kapoor. The sculpture's surfaces reflect and distort the city's skyline, making it a favorite backdrop for photographs. Don't miss the 15 m (50 ft) video sculpture/fountain, composed of black granite and light-emitting diodes that display digital images of Chicagoans puckering their lips and appearing to spit water. Take a look at our Chicago day trip app to schedule your visit to Millennium Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Millennium Park reviews
My boyfriend and I went to the park to see the big bean! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, there are some restrictions-which are understandable. We still got nice photos! Go check it out! more »
Millennium Park is a must!! You can’t visit Chicago and not go Millennium Park! So many FREE events occur in the summer! Highly recommended! Family friendly. Dog/ pet friendly. more »
We traveled far just to see this famous landmark of Chicago and were in Millennium Park the day after Christmas. The weather was nice that day. As seen in the picture, it was crowded with so many people coming. We can see people enjoying their time there, either alone or with company. You can also find ice skating rink and playground nearby, It's a nice serenity in the midst of busy city life.
This place is ecstatic by itself. You can say that you were above the clouds. The cloud gate is amazingly beautiful. I loved it's mirrors from different angles. It shows your different form from different angles. There is so much to do, one can spend whole day here.
