“Interesting sculpture”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

The Giant Bean sculpture is past the Concert area in Millennium Park. Great to snap a picture of there.

“The Number 1 place to visit in Chicago”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Absolutely mesmerising. Its a beautiful structure and reflects everything really well. It does get very busy there as its a good meeting point too! I would recommend visiting late at night. Unintentionally lucky for me but it rained quite heavily (at night) but I was still going to see it and there was pretty much no-one else there! The rain helps with the reflections around it.

“A Chicago landmark”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Locals call it "The Bean." It's great to see -- a stainless steel sculpture (that looks like an enormous bean) that reflects everything around it. Fun and impressive.

“A must see in Chicago.”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Also known locally as 'the bean' because of its shape, it is located in Millenium Park. The surface is highly polished stainless steel giving very clear reflections on people nearby and of the surrounding buildings. A must see.
