Chicago’s Home for the Holidays


This holiday season marks our 130th year on Michigan Avenue, and we are ready for festivities. The lights are twinkling on the Grand Staircase, and the lions are even greener beneath their wreaths—all that’s missing is you.

You and your loved ones are invited to join us for the most wonderful time of the year—visit your favorite galleries, explore our latest exhibitions, and enjoy art-making activities for the whole family.

And keep in mind that the museum is free for Illinois residents during every weekday, November 27–December 22!
