Situated across from the Loop’s business and entertainment district, the Chicago’s Museum Campus is located along the lakefront, and it is home to the city’s most visited institutions, not to mention that it is a quick 10-minute drive from The St. Regis Chicago. In addition to the iconic museums, Museum Campus is also home to Soldier Field.
The Planetarium is hosting a variety of upcoming events, like its ‘Scopes in the City series, which is making its way to Richard M.
