Additional Information

During 2005-06, the Museum renovated approximately 75 percent of its public space. In February of 2006, the Chicago Historical Society announced its new name: Chicago History Museum. The Museum features a renovated lobby with new artifacts, installations, and it introduces new galleries: the Costume and Textile Gallery, dedicated to displaying changing exhibitions from the Museum’s renowned costume and textile collections; Konen Family Children’s Gallery, where children learn about Chicago through their five senses; and the KPMG and Paul and Katherine Snyder Community Gallery that explores Chicago’s diverse people and places. The Exelon Wing houses the long-term exhibition, Chicago: Crossroads of America, which showcases Chicago’s past in five themed sections; the Tawani Foundation Diorama Hall; and the Chicago Room, an event space connected to the Uihlein Plaza and overlooking Lincoln Park.
