This small-yet-comprehensive military library and museum is offering free admission on Saturday in honor of Memorial Day—visit to check out Tet and the Battle of Hue, an exhibit that features 3D images created from original photographs of the Battle of Hue during the Vietnam War.
Memorial Day weekend is here, marking the unofficial start to summer in Chicago with outdoor music festivals, fireworks displays and the annual parade downtown. There's time to fit in a little bit of everything this weekend: Pay your respects during the wreath-laying ceremony and parade in the Loop, see Navy Pier's free fireworks show, grab a meal at your neighborhood BBQ restaurant and hit the best Chicago beaches after they open on Friday (or refer to our longer roundup of weekend events for even more options).
