Inside building lobby at 141 W. Jackson Blvd. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early.

Discover the richly ornamented exterior of the original 1930 Art Deco design by Holabird and Root and explore the soaring lobby and spectacular vault, befitting Chicago’s early traders. We’ll contrast those with the two additions to the south and east: the postmodern 1982 Murphy/Jahn homage to the 1930 building, with its towering atrium, and the functional 1997 Fujikawa/Johnson addition.

Note: Although it's not required, we recommend making reservations in advance for this tour.
