Until further notice, all CAC walking tours are suspended and the Center at 111 E. Wacker Dr. is closed, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines from the State of Illinois.

We’ve made it easier than ever for concierges to offer their guests a chance to discover Chicago's amazing architecture, through a visit to the Chicago Architecture Center or on a walking or bus tour.

Concierges vouchers can be used the same day you fill them out, or with minimal advance notice. Vouchers provide easy access to the CAC and ensure guests are booked on a specific tour.
