Chicago History Museum - Know Before You Go

9 Feb 2021 4:29 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Good news! The Chicago History Museum will be reopening March 4, 2021. The Research Center will open March 9th. Before you plan a research trip and catch-up on all your back log, know before you go:

  • A reservation is required for the Research Center. You can make a reservation starting the last week of the month for the following month. They are operating at a reduced capacity for social distancing.
  • In 2021, CHM is renovating the underground storage facility which houses the archives and manuscript collections. Some items will not be available to use for research. It is highly recommended to search the online catalog ARCHIE on the CHM website to see if what you are interested in using is available to use. Contact the Research Center if you have any questions by emailing
