You can find a museum dedicated to just about anything these days – sex, surgery, buttons, money – but until now, there hasn’t been an institution that really celebrates the art and history of pizza. That changed last month when the pop-up US Pizza Museum opened in Chicago’s South Loop, showcasing memorabilia, including old-timey advertisements, video games, vintage menus and rare pie boxes.
The free-entry museum, which will remain open until at least the end of October, even has a gift shop, which is stocked with pizza-themed clothing, artwork and souvenirs. Beyond cruising exhibits, guests will be able to check out an ongoing calendar of events and activities: book signings, dough demos, pizza parties and more. It’s the ultimate pizza party of your cheesiest dreams.
