Let's say the concept of giant mazes doesn't totally scare the bejeezus out of you. If that's the case, you might be interested to know that next week the Notebaert Nature Museum is opening their Mega Mystery Animal Maze. It's a life-sized, interactive maze where kids search for "mystery animals," and a special component asks them to guess names for animals native to the state. Sounds interesting and educational, but, um, I'm a big sissy so you probably won't see me there. The Museum is located at 2430 N. Cannon Dr. and you can all 773-755-5100 for more information. The exhibit will be on display through September 5.
