Capability to interact with each of the areas was amazing. All of the works were well done and not cheesy.

Somehow I got lucky enough to visit during the inaugural American Writer's Festival. The exhibits were informative, interactive, and overall a wonderful exhibit. They had several speakers throughout the day in-person and online streaming their presentations or live Q&A. I'm not sure if this is normally the case, but while I was there they had the festival split in two museums, the American Writers Museum and Design Museum of Chicago, so you got to enter both for free. Overall had a fun time and highly recommend to my fellow bookworms.
This place brought so many memories, so many emotions!! Loved every single detail. The Word waterfall, the exhibition of the day. There is so much to do and it is a very interactive visit. My only negative issue was that I had a hard time finding it since there are no proper signs outside and this is in a second floor of what looks like an appartment building. I enjoyed every minute spent.
