Mascot Hall of Fame

Found this on RA and realized how close to Chicago it was. I think it is a little more geared to kids, but I found the history of the mascots to be interesting. There were several interactive exhibits to demonstrate how much work goes into being a mascot, and it is harder than it looks! Solid execution, and worth a visit if you are in the area.
