Important Tour Information: Tours are temporarily unavailable due to new exhibits being installed. We will not be hosting our American Moments exhibition tours until further notice. We appreciate your understanding.
NHM is now offering group tours through American Moments: The Legacy of Greek Immigration. A docent will help visitors look closely at artifacts used by Greek American immigrants in the last 150 years and learn about the history of Greeks in Chicago.
Guided tours cost $7 per person, $6 per person for senior groups (age 62 or older). NHM can accommodate groups between 10 and 50 people.
NHM also offers self-guided tours, which allow visitors to view the galleries at their own pace. There is a 2-hour time limit for self-guided tours.
Self-guided tours cost $6 per person, $5 per person for senior groups. There must be at least 10 people to qualify for Self-Guided Tour rates.
Visitors with disabilities
NHM can best accommodate visitors with disabilities when we know about them ahead of time.
