The only defect, if so we wanna call it, is that is a little small, for the sport history that Chicago upholds. But in its dimensions it has lots of very interesting exhibits and even some games for everyone. If they will widen it up...More

Third time trying to go here and it is always closed for "private event". What a joke. This is not a museum it is a venue for private functions. Don't waste your time.

Located in the water tower mall, this was a great place to host our company function. Not only is there a lot of memorabilia, but there are A number of interactive experiences. The views of the lake and are also awesome.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

Response from Harry C | Property representative |
The Hall of Legends comprises about half of the Museum and the other areas would still be open. It tends to be busiest on weekends and holidays.
