The U.S. history has a major impact on the U.S. landmark format. With the northeast 225 years before any substantial migration west of the Mississippi River, historical landmarks are generally located on the east coast, while geographical or architectural landmarks tend to be located in the west. The Statue of Liberty was a gift obtained from France in 1886, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, a French sculptor. The aim of this gift was to celebrate the two nations' friendship and to symbolize the American dream of liberty. It sits on New York Harbor's Liberty Island and is one of the world's most recognizable landmarks.
The Chicago Art Institute is a museum of world class with hundreds of thousands of works of art. The diverse collection spans thousands of years and includes pieces from a variety of media, including paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, decorative arts, textiles, architectural drawings and more. Originally opened as a fun and shipping area in 1916, the Navy Pier is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in Chicago. The Navy Pier currently consists of 50 hectares of gardens, attractions, stores, cafes, concert venues, and parks. At Navy Pier Station, there is a 150-foot Ferris wheel and a historic carousel. The Museum of Science and Industry, established in 1933, is located at the north end of Jackson Park and perhaps the most impressive museum in Chicago. It is committed to applying natural laws in the development of technology and industry. It is claimed that the museum is the first in the U.S. to introduce the concept of hands-on exhibits.
