The Chicago History Museum is in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, close to Lake Michigan and Lake Shore Drive. Interested in the Chicago fire history? The history of prohibition in Chicago? This is the place to start! Family friendly, excellent restaurant on-site, close to downtown. …
Chicago History Museum was founded in 1856 to study and interpret Chicago's history. It is located in Lincoln Park at 1601 North Clark Street at the intersection of North Avenue in the Old Town Triangle neighborhood.
Amazing museum that explains all things "Chicago". A fav and right by the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Cool Chicago stuff. It's also close to the zoo and Lincoln Park Conservatory, so it's easy to visit all in an afternoon.
