Walking Tour | Paseo Boricua and Humboldt Park

Sunday, October 3

Join professional guide and local resident Eduardo Arocho on a walk through Humboldt Park, which has been home to Chicago’s Puerto Rican community since the 1960s. This thought-provoking tour explores the history of the iconic West Side neighborhood through the public art proudly displayed along the six blocks of Division Street (Paseo Boricua) and in Humboldt Park.

Tour presented in partnership with the Paseo Boricua Tour Company.

Although the city of Chicago is in Phase 5 of its reopening plan, CHM requires all visitors over age 2 and staff to wear a mask while inside the Museum or participating in a group tour. As vaccinations continue, we will evaluate and update policies. Learn more about the Museum’s safety policies and procedures.
