Don't know about that particular exhibit, but the the Museum of Science and
Industry is always worth going to.

<<Can you tell me if there is bus transportation which circles the Loop?>>

Yep. Thats why they call it "the loop." Only its an elevated train. A great
way to see the city, by the way. Buy a ticket for a $1.50 and you can see most
of the neighborhoods from the window of an elevated train. Maps available.

<<Is there a bus to get to the Daley Plaza to see the Picasso Sculpture?>>

An easy walk from the Hilton.

<<Would it be cost prohibitive to take a taxi out to Oak Park to visit Frank
Lloyd Wright's Studio? >>

Yeh, probably. Cabs charge meter and a half to go to the suburbs. But not so
bad if there are four people to a cab. And if a bunch of folks got together to
rent a limo, its actually cheaper. Of course, "cost prohibitive" is a relative
thing. But you might want to look into the possibilities. How often do you get
a chance to see all that Wright stuff in one place?
