The Fifth Star Challenge

If Chicago’s flag had a fifth star, what would it represent? Discover highlights from the city’s past, cast your vote, and see how your choice stacks up. While in the gallery, be sure to look beneath your feet and explore Chicagoland on our wall-to-wall floor map.

The Museum is grateful to the Guild of the Chicago History Museum, Allstate, and Marcia S. Cohn and the Jacob and Rosaline Cohn Foundation for making possible the projects in the updated Naphtali ben Yakov Pritzker American History Wing.
