The Chicago History Museum is open and we look forward to welcoming you back. Our priority is to maintain a safe environment for visitors and staff while sharing Chicago stories. Admission tickets are good for the full day and include all exhibitions. 

MembersRemember to sign-in to your account or register for an account if you haven't already done so. After signing in at the upper right, select your desired tickets, and then click Add to cart. You will then see your member discounts applied at the basket.

There will be signage at the Museum to guide you, but we highly recommend reading our updated safety guidelines prior to your visit. Although the city of Chicago has moved into Phase 5 of its reopening plan and the CDC has updated guidance regarding mask mandates for fully vaccinated people, CHM will continue to require all visitors over age 2 and staff to wear a mask while inside the Museum. As vaccinations continue, we will evaluate and update policies.

If you have already purchased a timed ticket for an upcoming date, that ticket is still valid. You can enter on your selected date, anytime between 9:30am and 4:30pm Tuesday through Saturday, or if you reserved a Sunday date then 12pm to 5pm.

General Admission to the museum includes all permanent and temporary exhibitions. Check out all of our exhibitions.


If you are an IL resident aged 18, you may register an account (see upper right corner). Then when logged in, you may reserve a maximum of two student tickets. Please have ID ready upon arrival.
