In addition to impressive skyscrapers on the part of the street which is called the Magnificent mile, there are some of the most expensive shops in the world - such as Gucci, Lord & Taylor, Tiffany and Versace, luxury hotels and restaurants. On the east side of Michigan Avenue, the tourists can see Art Institute of Chicago in a huge building. The University of Chicago was founded in 1857, but became a first-rate educational institution in 1890, with the help of John D. Rockefeller who invested millions of dollars in its development. This is one of the first universities in the U.S. to admit women in the 19th century, and the university library is known all over the country. The Museum of Science and Industry gathers scientific and industrial achievements. The exhibits are placed in huge halls which are divided into thematic sections: "Electricity", "Cars", "Timber". A coal mine, a full-size nuclear power plant, an agricultural farm with the farmyard are among the most popular exhibits here.

Chicago is the birth-place of the first skyscraper in the world. It introduced steel-skeleton constructions as a paragon for the buildings of tomorrow. Sears Tower skyscraper was once considered the tallest building in the world. It has 110 floors and the height of 442 meters. The world record so far is that the last populated floor here is located at the altitude of 436 meters. Sears Tower is recognized as the highest skescraper in the U.S., and the second in the world. Dizzying views on Lake Michigan open from the windows of the building, and Chicago itself seems to be a toy.
