“a place of learning & discovery”
The Chicago History Museum is a place of learning, discovery, creativity, and, well, history. We encourage people to value their own stories and share them with others. The Chicago History Museum stands at the crossroads of America’s past and its future. If you live in Chicago or visit here and are curious about the city’s past, present, and future, the Museum should be your first stop. One of the oddities the museum has on display is the bed president Abraham Lincoln died in. The Chicago History Museum cares for, showcases, and interprets millions of authentic pieces of Chicago and U.S. history. Our ability to illuminate the past is a reminder of what really happened once upon a time, sheds light on the present, and compellingly informs the future.We invite you to engage with our stories and make history yourself.
The cafe at the museum has phenomenal soups!
