Chicago History Museum Tour & Get Together

Have you wanted to explore the Chicago History Museum but haven't found the right time? Would you like to learn more about the history of the Chicago-area? Join Grisel Hernandez ’17, Doug Dobrzynski ’13, the Grinnell-in-Chicago Regional Planning Committee, and your fellow Grinnellians for a private, guided tour of the Chicago History Museum. 

The group will meet at the museum for a "Highlights of Chicago" guided tour then participants will have time to explore on their own.  After touring the museum, the group will head to PiniPico Brazilian Cafe for coffee/tea and treats. Enjoy a beverage on the College while discussing the museum exhibits and making friends.

Register online or or by phone at 866-850-1846 by Wednesday, May 17. The Grinnell-in-Chicago Planning Committee is subsidizing the cost of the tickets for attendees. Tickets for alumni and guests are $15 each and $10 for young alumni (2012-2022). The normal cost for admission without a tour at the museum is $19 per person so this is a great opportunity. Space is limited so register quickly!

Because this event involves pre-purchased tickets, we will not be able to offer refunds for any cancellations made after May 17. Refunds generally take 2-3 weeks to process.

We hope to see you there!
