The Chicago History Museum offers exhibitions and public programs that illuminate the city’s past, engage the city’s present, and point to Chicago’s future. Vivian Maier’s Chicago explores the city through the eyes of the nanny turned photographer who wowed the world with breathtaking images of everyday urban America. Maier’s Chicago collection is presented at larger than life scale vividly documenting Chicago neighborhoods and faces of the 1960s and 1970s. Lincoln’s Undying Words discover how Abraham Lincoln’s changing views toward slavery transformed America. The exhibition explores this powerful story through five key speeches made by Lincoln between 1858 and 1865. In Secret Lives of Objects, artifacts pulled from the darkened shelves and hidden crates of the Museum’s collection storage rooms, are finally getting their chance in the spotlight…and they have some pretty remarkable stories to tell. Permanent exhibitions include Chicago: Crossroads of America, Facing Freedom, Sensing Chicago, and Unexpected Chicago.
