Open House Chicago

For one weekend only, the Chicago Architecture Center gives you the chance to go behind the scenes of architecturally, culturally and historically significant sites across Chicago. This free annual festival is one of the largest events of its kind in the world—explore 170+ sites in 20+ neighborhoods.

New this year! We've added more than 40 new sites.  Tour the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Walt Disney's birthplace home, the Pullman National Historical Park, and many more.
