Q-tips say: US PIZZA MUSEUM is a small museum. Was nice that is FREE for now because not sure we would have paid to get in because now we know what it is. Many items regarding pizza from all around the US, Ill and a few from Europe. Pizza t shirts, key chains, and many other pizza shaped items to buy. They will arrange for you to go to a local pizza place afterwards to have pizza. The Q’s walked around the Roosevelt Collection Shops and had an enjoyable time. There are hints that it will move to another site after a while. Mrs. Q says: Go if you are in the area otherwise, go to another of the many other museums in the Chicago area. This small museum should probably housed in another museum like the Museum of Science and Industry as a separate exhibit.
