The Chicago History Museum allows you to learn all about the History of Chicago. Formerly known as the Chicago Historical Society, it is a must-see for all Chicago natives and visitors. The city’s oldest cultural institution, the Museum is all new after completing a nine month renovation in September 2006.

The Museum’s permanent exhibition, Chicago: Crossroads of America, explores the city’s economy, crises, innovation, neighborhoods, and entertainment. Visitors entering the exhibition are greeted by ‘L’ Car No. 1, the city’s first elevated train car. The Museum also installed its first Children’s Gallery, where kids can explore Chicago’s history using their five senses. Additional highlights include a Costume and Textile Gallery that showcases the Museum’s premier costume collection, and installation throughout the building, including a 1978 Chevy Monte Carlo custom low-rider and Lincoln’s death bed, and artifacts from Chicago’s two world’s fairs.
