Museum Description

The Chicago History Museum stands at the crossroads of America's past and its future. If you live in Chicago or visit here and are curious about the city's past, present and future, the museum should be your first stop.

The Chicago History Museum cares for, showcases and interprets millions of authentic pieces of Chicago and U.S. history. Our ability to illuminate the past is a reminder of what really happened once upon a time, sheds light on the present, and compellingly informs the future.

For additional information, please contact Josh Anderson in the Visitor Services Department at reception@chicagohistory.org or (312) 642-4600.

Students may also book meeting spaces for class, or conduct Research during regular research hours.
