Underrated Chicago Museum
When you're in Chicago -- and fall is the best time for doing this -- take a 15-minute field trip south from Downtown to Hyde Park to view the spectacular University of Chicago campus architecture among the co-eds, tour Frank Lloyd Wrights' Robie House, and visit the Oriental Institute Museum. The Oriental Institute Museum -- a world-renowned showcase for the history, art, and archaeology of the ancient Near East -- (undeservingly) receives a lot less press than other Chicago institutions so you just might experience the luxury of having the place to yourself.
