The Chicago History Museum offers exhibitions and public programs that share Chicago’s stories, illuminating the city’s past, engaging visitors in the city’s present, and pointing to Chicago’s bright future. Storytelling is at the core of who we are as humans, and it is how we learn, identify ourselves, and connect to others. In “American Medina: Stories of Muslim Chicago”, diverse stories of life experiences of Muslim people living in Chicago are shared in order to build connections in our communities through listening and understanding. Chicago’s legacy as a vibrant center of streamlined design is highlighted in “Modern by Design: Chicago Streamlines America”, open now through April 12, 2020. Our upcoming exhibition, “Millions of Moments: The Chicago Sun-Times Photo Collection”, opens March 28th and will feature 150 images that reveal the real Chicago through the lenses of award-winning Sun-Times photographers, spanning from the 1940’s to the early 2000’s. Permanent exhibitions include Chicago: Crossroads of America, Facing Freedom, Sensing Chicago, and Lincoln’s Chicago.
