Guild Field Trip: Polish Culture and Cuisine

Tuesday, March 28

In anticipation of the May 20 opening of CHM’s Back Home: Polish Chicago exhibition, join the Guild of the Chicago History Museum on a morning filled with Polish history and culture.

Our first stop will be the Holy Trinity Polish Catholic Church, founded in 1872, to view the ornate décor and relic-holding catacombs. Then, we will tour the Polish Museum of America and see their treasures, including an exhibition on Chicago’s Polish community, a folk art collection, Polish cavalry armor, and a stained glass window that was displayed at the 1939 World’s Fair. We’ll conclude our morning with a lunch of traditional Polish cuisine at Staropolska (voted the city’s best Polish restaurant by the Chicago Reader). Friends and guests are very welcome.

9:45 a.m. — Meet at the Chicago History Museum (for those who would like bus transport)
10:00 a.m. — Visit Holy Trinity Polish Catholic Church
