Chicago History Museum

As Chicago’s oldest cultural institution, the Chicago Museum of History was founded in 1856 as the “Chicago Historical Society” to study and interpret the history of the city and the nation. Offering a bridge between the city’s past and future, the museum’s original building was ravaged by fire in 1871 and then again in 1874, where many historical documents such as Abraham Lincoln’s handwritten “Emancipation Proclamation” were lost in the flames. After relocating in 1932 to a building on the edge of Lincoln Park and receiving a new refurbishment in 2006, the Chicago Museum of History welcomes you today with millions of authentic paintings, manuscripts and historical artifacts, including the compass of George Washington and death bed of Abraham Lincoln. This is a museum that fills its definitive role of understanding and transmitting of history of Chicago.
