Summer Speaker Series on the Riverwalk

Spend your Monday lunches on the Chicago Riverwalk and gain perspective on river related topics.  We invite you to join us every Monday from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. to hear an expert tell you a little bit about the river, wildlife, or architecture along the river.  It is free and open to the public.  Join us on the museum's outdoor plaza on the Riverwalk.
