CHICAGO | The Chicago History Museum was founded in 1856 to study and interpret Chicago’s history and is a must visit for anyone looking to learn more about the history of Chicago. The museum showcases important events and people throughout Chicago’s history in a thematic and chronological order to help drive the story from Chicago’s past to its present.

There are a number of permanent and temporary exhibits for visitors to explore, which showcase just a fraction of the museum’s 22 million holdings. Lincoln’s Chicago features portraits of Lincoln’s contemporaries with lithograph views of Chicago created in the 1860s, and shows what the city was like when Lincoln was rising to prominence. Chicago: Crossroads of America, is one of the largest exhibits, and features over 600 objects from Chicago’s history that help visitors explore Chicago’s development and its influence on American history.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
