Members’ Open House

Curious about new acquisitions? What to see what’s behind the dioramas? Wondering what exhibitions are in the works? Join us at our annual Members’ Open House! With millions of items in our care, we can only showcase a small percentage at a time. This is your chance go behind the scenes to see artifacts not on view to the public.

Connect with curators, collection managers, and historians to learn about what it takes to care for the collection, create exhibitions, and much more. Coffee and light refreshments included.

This event is free for Chicago History Museum members with advanced registration, up to the quantity admitted under your membership. Please note that due to scheduling, we are unable to bring guests to costume storage.
