Tour runs about 90 minutes. Meet just inside the street-level Jackson entrance to Union Station, 500 West Jackson Street.

Although the city of Chicago has moved into Phase 5 of its reopening plan and the CDC has updated guidance regarding mask mandates for fully vaccinated people, CHM will continue to require all visitors over age 2 and staff to wear a mask while participating in a group tour. As vaccinations continue, we will evaluate and update policies.
