Why We Like This Place

Things that make the Chicago History Museum a classic setting for a city wedding:

• Architectural elegance abounds. The Georgian-style Chicago Room, which offers views of Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast skyline, features a high, coffered ceiling and backlit cases displaying gorgeous stained-glass panels. In the two-level North & Clark Café, natural light flows in through floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the park.

• You have the option of an outdoor ceremony or reception. The expansive Uihlein Plaza provides fabulous views of Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast. And if the weather is a concern, the space can be tented!

• A Museum Event Coordinator will assist you with all the planning details.

• Hosting an event here helps preserve the museum for future generations. Your rental fee goes into keeping the museum’s programs and exhibitions running.
