Chicago Cultural Center

Located in the Loop, the Chicago Cultural Center is known for both its impressive architecture and its free programming, which includes more than 1,000 events each year. The building, originally constructed in 1897 to house the Chicago Public Library, is a Neoclassical structure featuring Carrara marble, colorful mosaics, gilded coffered ceilings, and the world’s largest Tiffany glass dome, consisting of more than 30,000 pieces of glass. Special events range from concerts and art exhibitions to dance performances, plays, and family events like the annual Dance-Along Nutcracker. Visitors can also dine in the lower-level café and unwind in the reading area.
