"I really hate to write," admitted Jack Kerouac. Lucky for us, he didn't let that stop him. The Beat Generation poet and novelist used a giant scroll of typewriter paper to create his seminal novel "On the Road", and it's just one of the many amazing artifacts and interactive exhibits you'll find at Chicago's American Writers Museum. Open to the public since May 2017, this cool new museum immerses you in a wonderland of words through cutting-edge technology, tracing the history of U.S. literature, as well as other forms of writing, from songs and ad slogans to poetry and sci-fi. Delve into the actual creative process, with a collaborative story area (complete with pencils, typewriters and digital access), a kid lit gallery and the "Anatomy of a Masterwork", which takes you into the mind of an author. And for all you logophiles (word lovers) out there, there's even a game room featuring interactive tabletop consoles.
