Your Support Matters

As the city’s oldest cultural institution, the Chicago History Museum knows what it means to endure through challenge and change. Since 1856, the Museum has been a constant for our city and worked tirelessly to preserve and share its fascinating stories. The Museum’s annual fund gives vital support where it is needed the most–enhancing public programming, preserving our collection, making our historical resources accessible to all, and educating the next generation of civic leaders. To do this work, we rely on the support of generous donors like you.
