  • Amazing how in Chicago make a beautiful harmony between old buildings and modern skyscrapers. The structure of the water tower dates back to the late 1800 's and is of significant impact, despite being lower than the surrounding buildings. Is close to a large shopping mall that gives the name and John Hancock.

  • Beautiful exterior! Great photo opps. Inside takes 10min or less & kinda boring but staff was really nice.
  • Saw the "Cards Against Humanity" exhibit, it was well done for such a small space.
  • I enjoyed my visit here, when I went they had the "Cards against humanity" exhibition, which will continue until September 4th 2016
  • Small but sweet. The building looks great at night and in the snow.
  • This gallery is a quick visit as it's not so large inside. It's a great excuse to check out the historic water tower which some find more interesting than the small art collections on exhibit here. Listen carefully for the ghost.
