A train/railroad museum would be cool. Do we have one in Chicago? The 78 Casino proposal talked about incorporating a museum, they are located at the former site of a giant rail yard and their observation tower is inspired by a rail bridge. Seems like it might be a perfect match.
Not in Chicago - but pretty close - Union Ill.

Ill Railway Museum - a few more shots

A smaller museum - next to active and busy tracks would be pretty cool.
