On The Orwells' new album, Greg Kot likes the band and songs but not the production.

Happy birthday, Mr. Shakespeare. Newberry Library celebrates bard times http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/museums/ct-museum-shakespeare-birthday-20140417,0,795690.column
Celebrating Shakespeare's birth makes more sense than marking his death.

My review of a show that made me wonder...
I've seen three shows now in Adler Planetarium 's still new, still state-of-the-art central domed theater, and I remain amazed at the quality of the celestial imagery and at the precision with which it is projected up on the dome.

It's all Greek to the Field, National Hellenic Museums. Big new antiquities exhibition coming next year.

Greek yogurt has elbowed its way onto dairy shelves. Greek mythology is now, more than just a school subject, a standard part of children's fantasy fiction reading and movie-going.

Chicago Sports Museum is ready for your visit. No jocks to sniff here, but lots of other mementos http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/museums/ct-chicago-sports-museum-20140424,0,5566073.column
At last, a place in Chicago that pays attention to sports!

To touch Stingrays, you could go to the Corvette museum in Effingham. Or... 
The surprise isn't that the Shedd Aquarium now has an exhibit where visitors can touch stingrays as they glide by, but rather that the most popular aquarium in the U.S. hasn't had one before now.
