August 26, 2017 – McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum Tour

Come join YPT Chicago and explore one of Chicago’s most unique museums. The McCormick Bridgehouse and Chicago River Museum is different than most museums because it’s only open during the summer time and provides an exclusive look of the McCormick Bridgehouse and the history of the Chicago River. We are planning on doing the Loop Around the Bridgehouse Tour followed up by grabbing some drinks and/or food at a nearby location (TBD).

The price of the tour is $12 and includes admission to the museum as well. The tour will begin promptly at 2:30 pm and last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. We recommend that everyone arrives at least 15 minutes early so no one misses out.

If you do intend on attending, please register so we can let the museum know the expected head count.

Date and Time: Saturday, August 26, 2017 starting at 2:15 pm

Venue: McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum, 99 Chicago Riverwalk, Chicago, IL 60601

Please visit  YPT Chicago McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum Tour to register now! We hope to see you there!
