"The Office Experience" brings Scranton to Chicago
In the wake of the popular "Friends Experience" last summer, Chicago now welcomes "The Office Experience."
Why it matters: The new exhibit fills vacant downtown real estate with an attraction likely to bring tens of thousands to the central business district.
- Plus, even a non-Office-head like me enjoyed it.
First look: Located in the old Forever 21 store at Michigan and Ohio, the exhibit includes a big ground floor gift shop and recreation of the time Michael Scott knocked over warehouse shelves with a forklift. (You can take pics here for free!)
Up an escalator: You'll find the paid exhibit featuring 17 rooms of games, trivia, memorabilia like Pam's pink cardigan, and a fully-interactive recreation of the Dunder Mifflin office, including the conference and break rooms.
- There's even a recreation of the chapel where Pam and Jim got married.
If you go: It's best for major Office geeks (obviously), but even casual fans may like coming out with dozens of Instagrammable pics and videos of themselves in the show's classic settings.
- It runs through Jan 17. Tickets start at $37.50 and are good for specific times and dates.
- Pricier tickets get you Dunder Mifflin work badges, private event spaces and more.
