The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the George Lucas Museum will be coming to Chicago, beating out offers made by Los Angeles and San Francisco. The museum will house Lucas' extensive collection of Star Wars memorabilia, though we're hoping that he leaves these items in the vaults. The proposed location for the museum is a parking lot near Solider Field (which means that there's plenty of room for a full scale Millennium Falcon replica).
