“Fun Art”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I have always seen this in pictures and was pleasantly surprised that it was so close to where I was staying. Check for the concerts in the park this summer on Monday's.

If you are a Geocacher, this is a Geocache! Have fun!

“Get there early for a great shot”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This stainless steel sculpture is gigantic and engaging. Amish Kapoor is an incredible sculpture, and this seamless piece warps and magnifies and distorts images. A tip is to get there early in the morning, before the throngs of tourists - you can get the best shot at that time of the day.

“Dazzling”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

The bean creates all sorts of amazing reflections from different angles, that show surreal elongated versions of the surrounding buildings and sky. The optical effects underneath the bean are particularly impressive. My only criticism of the attraction was that it was extremely crowded, but that is just a sign that it is good fun.

“Fantastic interactive sculpture”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

In its setting of Millennium Park, Cloud Gate is amazing. We marveled at the different images created by the shiny surface of 'The Bean', and had our photos take in different position - of course! As the light changes and clouds drift past, it's most impressive
