Love Antiques? Stream These PBS Shows Online!

April 16, 2014 11:01 am

Do you love all things retro or antique? Are you an avid collector who loves exploring old houses and refurbishing outdated furniture? If you’re interested in antiquing or remodeling, PBS offers great programming focused on each of those areas. The network’s website now offers two of these popular programs online completely for free.

This Old House
One of the original home improvement shows, This Old House features one whole-house renovation over several different episodes. Follow the likeable host and crew members as they gut an old house, then rebuild it into a fully functional version of its original glory. If you want to learn about remodeling your own home, the show’s Ask This Old House segment, a shorter version of the original show, teaches viewers carpentry tricks and answers questions from viewers.

Antiques Roadshow
This incredibly popular program is beloved by history buffs and home decor enthusiasts alike. Each episode features a group of antique appraisers at trade shows, as well as hopeful antique owners who wait anxiously as the experts reveal the story behind their most precious belongings. Some of the items are worth big bucks, but other folks find that their priceless treasures are actually fairly worthless.

Put Millennium Park on your to-visit list. Filled with architecture, beautiful landscapes, and art, this Chicago park embraces the city landscape. Make sure you bring your camera to take pictures with the iconic statues, like Cloud Gate, the "giant bean." Other popular exhibits include the Crown Fountain, Lurie Gardens, Wrigley Square, and Boeing Galleries. Come explore, or just relax on one of the many park benches and people-watch. Feel free to bring your own picnic into the park or dine at the Park Grill.

If you're interested in learning more about the history of the park, take one of the free guided walking tours, like the Millennium Park Greeter Tours and the Lurie Garden Guided Walks. Free events are always taking place in Millennium Park, like concerts, exhibitions, and more. Visit the website for more information. Open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m, daily.
