Right next to Michigan Avenue at Vernon Hills, Cuneo Museum or "Marble Museum" is a great place to visit.

The architecture of it and the materials used (17 different kinds of marble in combination with mahogany) make it unique. Also, what is impressive is that this quite small museum now, used to be the biggest residence of Chicago. You can get informed for the history of the place from the staff which is very helpful and friendly.

The Gardens are fantastic and very well cared.
