The Halim Time & Glass museum showcases magnificent collections of timepieces and stained glass by America’s greatest artists. Housing more than 1,100 pieces from around the world, the extensiveness of the museum’s diverse and wide-ranging collection is unlike any other in the United States.

After our private, guided tour, your trip includes a catered lunch in one of the galleries. We will then head to the Illinois Holocaust Museum, designed by renowned architect Stanley Tigerman. The museum is dedicated to preserving the memories of those lost in the Holocaust and teaches current generations about the need to fight hatred, indifference and genocide in today’s world. The tour is docent-guided and includes an interactive survivor experience. A continental breakfast will be served en route and a fast food stop (on your own) will be made on the way home.

My travel friends (Beckie, Tonda, and Leah) and I would like to say THANK YOU for such a wonderful Chicago Shopping Trip on Saturday, December 1st. Our group had a wonderful time. The price for the trip was unbeatable. The organization of the trip was flawless. Donna was a wonderful hostess who made sure everyone's needs were met. Bob, the bus driver from excursion travel, was the best driver we have ever had and we have been on quite a few bus trips in the past.
We will definitely recommend future bus trips sponsored by Parks and Recreation to our friends and families. We would certainly be interested in taking future bus trips through the Parks and Recreation. This was our first time and I sure it will not be our last.
Thanks again for such a wonderful time last Saturday.
