Mayor Lori Lightfoot will be in a new educational video series that will highlight Chicago's cultural institutions:
The series will partner with the city's museums and cultural institutions to invite students to go behind the scenes at some of Chicago's most iconic places on Wednesdays, while staying home.
Mayor Lightfoot will join museum curators and staff as they lead virtual tours of their most popular exhibits and even share hidden treasures not usually seen by the public.
Viewers will take virtual field trips to places like the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum, the DuSable Museum of African American History, the Museum of Science and Industry, the National Museum of Mexican Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Along with each episode, students will find corresponding worksheet activities to further engage with each museum experience.
