Have you ever walked by a breathtaking building in Chicago and thought, "I wish I could see what's inside?" This weekend you can: October 15-16, 2016. Courtesy of the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago – a FREE public festival that offers behind-the-scenes access to more than 200 buildings across Chicago.
And, I’m volunteering! Stop by the McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum on Saturday from 1:00 – 5:00 pm to say, Hi!, and check out five-story, 1,400-square-foot bridgehouse that’s part of the revolutionary 1920 double-decker Michigan Avenue (now DuSable) bridge.
Learn more about all 200 locations at openhousechicago.org.
