Walking Tour | Union Station

Saturday, October 16

Take a closer look at one of America’s last great railway terminals, which bustles with activity day and night. Find out why it was once called “a city within a city” and learn the hidden stories that go unseen by thousands each day.

Tour runs about 90 minutes. 

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.
