25th Annual Wreathing of the Lions

November 25, 2016
Michigan Avenue entrance and Ryan Learning Center

Kick off the holidays at the 25th anniversary of this Chicago family favorite—with this year's emcees, the Chicago cast of the hit musical Hamilton. This free event starts on the historic Michigan Avenue steps as we adorn our beloved lions with their traditional holiday wreathes. Hamilton cast members will lead us through the ceremony full of special treats including complimentary hot chocolate and a live performance by the Soul Children of Chicago.

At 10:30 a.m., following the outdoor ceremony, head into the museum and stop by the Ryan Learning Center for art-making fun.
