A beautiful outdoor courtyard, and indoor meeting space and right on the beach! Great spot for lunch and plant shopping during the Miller Garden Walk each year.

Marquette Park underwent a lengthy restoration and is just getting back on its feet. The remodeling of the Aquatorium was finished at this time and it is much better that it was. Lake Michigan is a magnificent background for any outings you attend at the Aquatorium.

An old beach-house right on the dunes of Lake Michigan, this refurbished location was a perfect location for a family wedding. The building has been tastefully refurbished after many years as its prior function. Along with special rooms and open space, this location was very accommodating for a multi-function wedding - ceremony and social occasion following. There was ample parking... More

The Aquatorium which was the bath house when Marquette Park was the place to go in the early 1900's. Marquette Park, The Pavillion and the Aquatorium have been recently renovated with a 28M grant. Both are now used and rented for weddings/parties. The park itself with the renovation looks like a Chicago Lake front park. It is safe and secure... More

My fiance and I decided to check out The Aquatorium as the venue for our wedding this summer. We fell in love with it immediately. We're getting married on the second floor, and there's no end in sight with how we can personalize it. It also allows for a gorgeous view of the sunset, and the surrounding beach is clean.... More

My son was married yesterday at the Aquatorium. Even though I had been to Miller Beach as a kid, I never remembered it. It was terrific. Although it was hot outside, the stone building was cool. Beautiful vistas of the lake on three sides. All the guests commented on the beautiful landscaping in the courtyard. All in all a great... More

I'm not sure what the last reviewer was looking for in a beach spot but the Aquatorium is, without a doubt, one of my favorite places to view the water. I live just a few blocks from it and I'm glad I do. It's a beautiful structure with some rich history. The gardens are gorgeous and the refurbished area on... More

My husband and I had traveled to Chicago for business. When our meeting dismissed early, we decided to visit the Indiana Dunes National Shoreline on our way home. Since our time was short, we stopped at the Indiana Visitor's Center for advice on where to go. We said we weren't interested in swimming -- we just wanted a lovely place... More
