As a resident Chicagoan and a big sports fan, this museum is disappointing to visit. Good thing it was included with our meal purchase from Harry Carey’s, otherwise I would have been disappointed to pay. They had some nice memorabilia, but some of the exhibits...More

I attended a dinner function in one of the special event rooms and was underwhelmed. It's certainly not a museum unless you count framed front pages of newspapers and signed sports jerseys as iconic items (you find these in any sports bar). There were a...More

The only defect, if so we wanna call it, is that is a little small, for the sport history that Chicago upholds. But in its dimensions it has lots of very interesting exhibits and even some games for everyone. If they will widen it up...More

You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the

Even if they let you in, you won’t enjoy the museum at its full. It’s small indeed but I suggest you to go earlier than 15 min before closing.

The Hall of Legends comprises about half of the Museum and the other areas would still be open. It tends to be busiest on weekends and holidays.
