Creating 10,000 Square Feet of Wonderland Express

We’re taking you behind the scenes to see what it takes to put together the 10,000-square-foot Wonderland Express exhibition. Crews were cleaning up and repairing the Chicago landmark buildings before they’re placed in the exhibition. Watch to see this year’s new features and learn about their natural building materials.
