  • It is fascinating to see modern buildings combined with this old Tower, I found walking along the Magnificent mile, in fact I is contemplating a while the construction. Photo required.

  • The small structure is the definitive and most iconic landmark of Chicago. There’s really not much to see, but from a historical perspective, it is the starting point for the building of a great city. 
  • You cannot enter the building or visit it but its architecture and its history, explained on a plate, are worth a visit...

  • 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.
