History Highlights Gallery Tour

Led by a volunteer gallery interpreter, this 30-minute tour of our permanent exhibition Chicago: Crossroads of America explores a specific aspect of Chicago’s history.

From Outpost to Metropolis

Incorporated in 1837, Chicago grew from a frontier town into a world-class city that hosted the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. Join volunteer Vera Antoniadis as she walks you through this remarkable transformation.
