If you love pizza, generally the best way to express that love is to eat some pizza. But maybe you feel like digging into a pie in a more cultural sense, in which case the upcoming US Pizza Museum is likely a must-visit destination for you (after you check out the Pizza Hut Museum, of course).
The US Pizza Museum has existed as a website and various pop-up exhibitions since 2015, but next month it will come to its new permanent home at Chicago’s Roosevelt Collection, a mixed use development in the city’s South Loop neighborhood. According to a recent Chicago Tribune article on the museum, this is what visitors will have to look forward to:
“The museum’s holdings include pizza art, pizza-themed clothing, pizzeria menus, pizza ads, toys, pizza-themed magnets, pizza books and even pizza records, such as ‘Let’s Have a Pizza Party’ by The Gaylords.”
Admission to the US Pizza Museum will be free, but reservations through the museum’s website here are required.
