What's Pizza? Go to US Pizza Museum at Roosevelt Collection to Find Out

Looks like Museum Campus is getting a new attraction - sort of...(via Chicago Tribune):
The U.S. Pizza Museum is getting a home — for now — at the Roosevelt Collection. The museum is slated to open Aug. 10 in the mixed-use development in Chicago’s South Loop and is scheduled through the end of October. 
Kendall Bruns, the museum founder, said the museum may remain open in that location longer, depending on public demand. 
Bruns created the museum in 2015 as a tribute to all things pizza, but it has existed mostly in the form of pop-up exhibits and online at the museum’s website. The move to the Roosevelt Collection will provide him with 3,000 square feet, twice as much space as the largest of the pop-ups, Bruns said, allowing him to add context to the exhibit items and tell the story of pizza and its makers in the United States.

Admission is free to all ages, but an online reservation is required for timed entry. The first wave of tickets is available now. Click here for tickets.
The museum will be open on Fridays, Saturday and Sundays.

For whatever reason this news makes us think about a segment where Jon Stewart questions whether or not Chicago's famous deep-dish is pizza:

Maybe the museum will solve this....
