The McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum celebrates Chicago's river and world-famous movable bridges by shining light on their significance to the city. Beginning at river level and spiraling five stories up, the museum provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore a historic landmark bridgehouse. At river level, visitors can view the massive gears of Chicago's most famous movable bridge and then journey through time as they experience the story of the Chicago River. Once at the top of the bridgehouse, visitors are treated to 360-degree views of the city and river, and will gain a whole new perspective on the beauty and complexity that is Chicago. On select dates, visitors can get a behind-the-scenes look at the gears in motion as they lift the Michigan Avenue Bridge. See website for bridge lift details, tours, and other special events. Come celebrate our 10th anniversary with us. We have great programming for both kids and adults all summer long.
