Chicago Tribune: Take a break from the sport of shopping to check out this museum on the seventh floor of the Mag Mile mall. Peruse an impressive collection of Cubs 2016 World Series memorabilia, including Addison Russell's Game 6 grand slam ball and Grandpa Rossy's Game 7 catcher's gear. All of the city's major sports teams are represented in interactive exhibits and virtual reality games, where you can guard the goal against Patrick Kane, shoot hoops with Scottie Pippen and do a quarterback challenge with Richard Dent. The 8,000-square-foot space makes room for other sports, too, like a simulator that puts you in the driver's seat at the Chicagoland Speedway. Pro tip: Admission is free if you eat at Harry Caray's 7th Inning Stretch restaurant next door.
