  • What is the difference between the Architectural Cruise and the Historical Cruise?

    There is a overlap between the two cruises, as you cannot speak about one without mentioning the other. The Architectural Cruise will cover Chicago's World Class Architecture, and is offered daily throughout the entire season. The History Cruise, offered in partnership with the Chicago History Museum, focuses on the historical development of the city, and is only offered during a portion of the season at 3pm (Friday-Sunday). On the History Cruise you will gain access to a booklet of photos from the Chicago History Museum archive, allowing you to picture the historical views of Chicago while looking at the City through a lens of present-day.

    Yes, the 90 minute cruise will depart from Illinois and McClurg, 465 N. McClurg Ct.,  (Ogden Slip) and will return to the same location.
