The Visitor's Center at the Cantigny Gardens has a glass floor. Beneath the glass is a scale model of the garden.
The whole of Cantigny park covers 500 acres. Besides the botanical gardens there is a military museum, picnic and camping areas, and a golf course and restaurant. This is all laid out to scale beneath the glass floor. I'm sure the floor is capable of supporting a good deal of weight, however, I skirted the edges just to be safe.
The park includes a veterans memorial and military museum with vintage tanks and canons. In the gift shop Willy found a toy rifle and helmet that he could not live without. He struck appropriate poses and asked for pictures. Willy makes a good soldier.
We saw a lot this week but if I were to name a favorite thing it would be this park. Perhaps the most surprising thing about it is that the admission was only $5.00 per car for parking. Quite a bargain. Thank you Mr. McCormick. The park is just outside of Chicago in Wheaton, Illinois. To read about this fine park look HERE.
