Read the Monroe Building as half of an ensemble of two revival-style buildings envisioned to serve as a gateway to downtown Chicago. The magnificent lobby has rich display cases to help us learn about its construction, restoration and famous tenants. After that, we visit the Pritzker Military Museum & Library (free of usual admission charge) where we learn and contemplate the contributions of the citizen soldier. After the tour you’re welcome to stay to see more. We know you’ll be surprised and delighted!

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