I have been here several times, with family and friends, even took a selfie. But it’s just a big funhouse mirror in the shape of a kidney bean. Good for little kids (but not nearly as much as the huge video screens of people’s faces w water spout right next door).

Lovingly referred to as “The Bean”, this is a beautiful public sculpture by Anish Kapoor in Millennium Park. It’s not a trip to Chicago without a visit here. The structure beautifully reflects Chicago’s famous skyline and the clouds above. Stand underneath the sculpture too...it’s really cool.

It was freezing cold but we decided to walk over to The Bean in the evening after dinner. Although it was freezing and dark I highly recommend going at night. Far less crowds to battle and The Bean is so pretty at night!

This was the only thing my wife wanted to see when we visited Chicago. I have to say it was better than I expected. The structure is pretty cool and the way it reflects images is pretty cool. It’s also pretty cool to walk under it and look up. Cloud Gate is located in Millennium Park and it is vary easy to get to, but it can get crowded so be prepared to be around a lot of people.

The egg is very impressive, especially on a good day. You can see the buildings and sky as well as yourself from it.

The Cloud Gate or Bean, as we locals call it, is a must stop for Chicago visitors along with the Miracle Mile, Sears (Willis) Tower and the Coal Mine at the Museum of Science and Industry. Its a great spot for selfies and to see a reflection of the Chicago skyline. Meet new friends from all over the world.

I didn't know this humongous, iconic artwork had a name other than "The Bean".

It was worth the visit. There were a great many people around it, having fun taking pictures. The atmosphere was relaxed and a little festive.

The top surface of "Cloud Gate" reflects the sky and the clouds. The sides reflect the city skyline all around it.

It's also worth a visit at night, when all the buildings are lit up from their interior lights.

What can I say, I've never been anywhere like this before and most likely will never be anywhere like this again. The park is clean, the Bean is cool and all was well with my world that night.

We saw this on a cool, windy, damp morning and it was still an amazing piece. No matter where you stand, the view is fascinating. Kids will love it as will their parents!

You do not get tire of visiting. You wonder what is so important about the Bean but for some reason you always end up there and taking many pictures which you probably already have but it is very interesting and fun.
