  • During my college days I would come here a lot to study, check out the galleries, listen to the live jazz and classical concerts. Free WiFi, quiet, cozy. Definitely one of my favorite places in Chicago. And it's all free!

  • Beautiful exhibits rich with information and expression of the city and the people within it. Check out Storycorps if you get a chance, it's a great project that will allow you to have an in-depth recorded conversation about whatever you want and with whomever you want it to be with! An appointment is necessary but it and the cultural center is free!

  • Today did a mini tour with a friend. Was very informative and had a great time. Will be returning very soon. 😊😀 Highly recommend to both Chicago Natives and tourists and learn about our cities deep, rich and mixed culture

  • Took a date here, she's new to the area. I've always loved the rotating exhibits, especially at the price point! Also great staff and volunteers always able to help

  • Excellent structure with a rich history. Do catch a show if you have the time. You can also catch someone practising for their performance during off times or before shows. Many tour guides prefer to start their tours here. You can just tag along if they are cool with it.
