  • It is nice place with an interesting atmosphere. However, it isn't a museum, it's a library. There were a few photos and posters, thats it. The library is impressive but certainly not a tourist attrac...  read more »

  • I visited the Pritzker Military Library during the Chicago Architecture Foundation's Open House Chicago 2013. What a treat! This amazing space is open to visitors for a nominal fee, opening a world of historical books, periodicals and displays highlighting our nation's military history. Colorful posters, photographs and multimedia exhibits will peak your interest in this material, as will the state-of-the-art theater, oral history room and computerized resources. Don't miss the Medal of Honor exhibit to see an actual Medal of Honor on display, as well as an interactive exhibit allowing you to review details of the complete Medal of Honor roll! This is a worthwhile diversion on your visit to the city, allowing you to not only experience the famous Monroe Building, but to take in a cultural museum experience as well.
  • Great place to see a bunch of history about any American war
  • I really enjoyed this place. The exhibits are very well thought out and informative.
  • Hard core military history.
  • I agree with the other five star ratings. Impressive!
