More Than the Score in Chicago!
Two-minute walk from the UVA fan hotel—Hyatt Regency Chicago

The Chicago Architecture Center (CAC) is the city’s new all-in-one architecture experience: a museum with two floors of fascinating exhibits and a gateway to more than 85 awe-inspiring city tours!

Join UVA’s Lifetime Learning as we make available for you and other UVA fans a 45-minute, docent-led tour: “Insider’s Guide to the Galleries.”

At the Chicago Architecture Center:

  • Learn how Chicago became “the city of architecture” with exhibits about its diverse neighborhoods, housing types, leading architects and up-and-coming projects
  • View the largest 3D model of Chicago, with more than 4,200 buildings and cinematic elements that tell amazing stories of the city
  • Discover the international influence of skyscrapers through super-sized models of tall buildings from around the globe
  • Explore how design will shape the cities of tomorrow and imagine what urban life will look like in 2050

Feel free to explore the museum on your own before or after the tour. To extend this experience, you can take a boat, walking, bus, bike, or “L” train tour on your own.
