Chicago Architecture Center 111 E. Wacker Dr.

All of the buildings on this 1-hour tour are located within 1½ blocks of the Chicago Architecture Center. The shorter walking distance allows for longer viewing time inside the faithfully restored lobbies of three landmark Art Deco buildings and, for comparison, one neo-classical building. Offered only in January and February, this tour offers less exposure to the elements and more exposure to the glamour and history of some of Chicago’s best Art Deco buildings.


  • Many tours sell out. To guarantee your space advance reservations are strongly recommended.
  • The tour includes two optional views from balconies that are reached by stairs. 
  • Ticket price includes entrance to the Chicago Architecture Center within 7 days of your tour. View the CAC's hours.
