Located in the historic Water Tower Place on Michigan Avenue, the Museum offers one of Chicago’s most engaging and unique event venues. The highly interactive Museum explores the legends and lore of Chicago sports, and can be rented as an exclusive playground for groups of all kinds.

The Hall of Legends

The Hall of Legends, located within the Museum, accommodates 260 guests for seated events and 500 for receptions. It can also be divided in half for smaller events. Massive windows with breathtaking lake views flood the space with natural light and also offer great views of the Navy Pier fireworks. Two jumbo screens roll down from the ceiling for exceptional video viewing.

Entire Museum

The entire Museum can be rented as an exclusive playground for a reception of up to 700 guests or as added entertainment (and a great spot to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres) for seated events of up to 260 guests. The broadcast booth can serve as a DJ booth and the photo booth can be customized to match the theme of the event.

Both the Chicago Sports Museum and the adjoining Harry Caray’s 7th Inning Stretch are ideal venues for hosting corporate events, private parties, and weddings. The 23,000 square foot event space frequently hosts product and partnership launches, company meetings, client/sponsor mixers, and networking events. The museum can be segmented to accommodate groups as small as 20 or rented as a full-buyout for 700. For larger events, the complex as a whole can accommodate groups of up to 1200 reception style. With award winning food, extraordinary service and close to 30 years of catering and event planning experience, Harry’s and the Chicago Sports Museum will perfectly orchestrate your event from start to finish.
