"SNL exhibit brought back many good memories. Gave one a better appreciation of how much work goes into the 1 week to produce the Saturday nigh show. Reminded you of the great amount of talent that came from the show. Loved the Chicago connection!"

Why We Love It

  • Exclusive interviews with Bono, Dee Snider, Lars Ulrich, Gloria Estefan, Gregg Allman, Jimmy Carter and others are combined with multimedia, photographs, periodicals and artifacts to examine music's role in shaping cultural norms on topics including civil rights, LGBT issues, feminism and censorship
  • Items on display include original handwritten lyrics from Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Green Day; correspondences between the FBI and Priority Records regarding N.W.A's "Fight the Power"; and artifacts related to the Vietnam War, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the #BlackLivesMatter movement
  • called the exhibition "a remarkable display of the power of rock"
  • The museum, at Kinzie and State, is only a block from the river

So many wonderful items on display for the SNL: The Experience exhibit. Extremely well done! Great memories and very educational to see how a show is put together. Loved the actual costumes and the hand written letters by stars who are no longer with us. Wish the exhibit was here longer.

What a great place! I need to come back. I loved seeing the Bozo and Garfield Goose items. Chicago has a very rich broadcasting history and it's so cool to see it all in once place!
