The south side of our Chicago Room is a gorgeous location for an indoor ceremony. The amount of natural light varies by the time of year, but our lighted stained glass panels look great at any time!

Chicago History Museum

We're in this together. The Chicago History Museum is contributing to the fight against COVID-19 by donating a large number of gloves, N95 face masks, aprons, eyewear, and other personal protection equipment (PPE) to Cook County Health. Our collections staff uses PPEs when handling artifacts that could have been treated with hazardous substances, possibly have toxic molds or fungi, and to protect artifacts from oils and other materials. #CoronaVirusChallenge https://hubs.ly/H0nQHGp0

Not to be outdone by our museum friends!

Guess who we caught sneaking around the Museum? Looks like Peloton 1860s-style + a good walk is helping Honest Abe stay fit because he couldn't let Sue at the Field Museum and the penguins at Shedd Aquarium have all the fun. Learn more about our sixteenth president in our online exhibitions. #MuseumFromHome #onepeloton http://www.chicagohistory.org/exhibitions/
