I enjoyed the Chicago El walking tour. Our guide, CAF Docent Bruce was enthusiastic and well informed. It was great see so many iconic buildings from the level of the third floor! The walking to and from the starting El stations was at a comfortable pace. Our group of 9 people stayed together as we were herded in and off of multiple trains. A worthwhile 2 hour tour!

The highlights of this attracton include a huge 3-D model of thousands obuildings in the Loop and adjacent areas, created with a 3-D printer, and upstairs an exhibit exploring some of the most famous skyscrapers in the world in an even larger scale 3-D. See this center before or after a First Lady river tour of Chicago architecture--it is right across Wacker Drive

I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the intention from those that are so talented, in planning for the future. What they have achieved so far and what they hope to do is fascinating. The models of the buildings all over the world are so impressive, I am so impressed with it. I highly recommend!!!

Not very big, but very high quality, interactive exhibits. The guides were very friendly as well. Absolutely worth the money.

This is the first stop you should make..the tours are fantastic, whether they be boat, walking or just reading the literature. The store offers many wonderful things to purchase, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The location of the shore now is great.
