THE LOOP — The city's first-ever "Foodseum," complete with exhibits guests can eat, will open next month at Block 37.
The three-month pop-up museum will debut Saturday, Sept. 19 at the Downtown mall, 108 N. State St. Its first exhibit will be "The Hot Dog and Encased Meat of the World."
"Food is such an important part of each of our lives," Kyle Joseph, the Foodseum's executive director, said in a statement Thursday. "Foodseum will provide visitors a fun and interactive window into what's behind it all."

The 2,500-square-foot museum — which is still seeking a permanent home — will arrive at Block 37 after looking for space on the Chicago Riverwalk. Open until Dec. 20, its hours will be from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The Foodseum will be on the second floor of Block 37 and can be entered from the mall's door at 109 N. Dearborn St.
