The bridge lifts are beginning for the fall 2016 season, and with that our bridge lift viewing tickets are now available at the museum! Experience the bridge lifts up close and personal in the museum's gear room. Watch the massive working gears lift the DuSable (Michigan Avenue) Bridge for an insider's view from the only working bridgehouse tower open to the public in Chicago.
Entry fee is $10 per person and includes museum admission. Members of Friends of the Chicago River receive a $3 discount.
Advance registration is recommended for Saturday bridge lifts. Reservations for the following Saturdays are now available: September 17th, September 24th, and October 29th. Reserve your spot at 312/977-0227.
