INSPIRE AND REFLECT BUS TOUR
ILLINOIS HOLOCAUST MUSEUM AND CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN
June 22 and 29
Jump on a bus in downtown Chicago and spend the day visiting two premier attractions on the North Shore!
The First stop is Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie, where a docent will lead you on a tour of the inspirational Museum, which seamlessly weaves history with local Survivor narratives. Through August, see Purchased Lives: The American Slave Trade from 1808-1865, a special exhibition that tells the stories of those whose lives were bought and sold. Following the tour, you will visit the award-winning Survivor Stories Experience Theater where you will have a “conversation” with a 3D interactive Survivor hologram. The Survivor Stories Experience features Dimensions in Testimony, developed by USC Shoah Foundation in association with Illinois Holocaust Museum.
After being amazed by these moving stories told through innovative technology, you will travel 15 minutes to the beautiful Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe, where you will be able to grab lunch and stroll 27 gardens and four natural areas, including the renowned Bonsai collection.
