Plan a trip to Chicago, and make sure you include this new museum. which is downtown......a lot of the stained glass was previously out on Navy Pier, as I visited them several times.

The Halim Museum is in Evanston rather than Chicago (although maybe people who haven't lived in Chicago think of them as near enough the same!) and it's good to see that it is finally opening. It was the Smith Museum which was on Navy Pier (and there is still some of the Driehaus Collection there) rather than the Halim collection.
