Overlooked in the debate about the Children's Museum, until now: Is it any good?

"In comparison, the Chicago Children's Museum, which at $8 has the highest non-member admission of the three [Chicagoland children's museums], plus hefty parking fees on Navy Pier, books one unimaginative commercial traveling exhibit after another, often with licensed characters children are expected to recognize from television."

Sun-Times family entertainment writer Delia O'Hara says no, emphatically.

Via the Beachwood Reporter; Steve Rhodes's Friday Papers on the Museum is a must-read, including some inside-baseball gossip on how this relates to the decimation of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs.
