Dozens of ticket types were issued during the course of the fair, including entry tickets designed for special days such as Manhattan Day, or Chicago Day, standard one-day passes, and children's tickets. There were also tickets to rides or venues inside the fair that required an extra fee, such as tickets to the giant Ferris Wheel, or to the cultural exhibits that showcased the people and habitats of societies from around the globe, such as the Samoan, Lapland, or Java villages. Some were interesting and decorative, and some were plain, numbered tickets like what you might receive today to enter a movie theatre, or raffle. So in the "Miscellaneous" section we will present a few of the more collectible types of the many tickets allowing visitors to get in, and around, the fair.
