Welcome back! Choose from more than 50 reinstated walking tours, book a CAFC River Cruise and come see what’s new at the Center.

Our volunteers are the heart of the Chicago Architecture Center.

In so many ways, volunteers serve as the public face of the Chicago Architecture Center. It’s their commitment to excellence that enables us to carry out our mission of inspiring people to discover why design matters.

The CAC volunteer community is made up of more than 1,500 passionate docents, education guides, exhibit hosts, guest services and Open House Chicago volunteers dedicated to creating extraordinary experiences for our visitors. In return for their valued service, volunteers receive exciting benefits, including gift shop discounts and opportunities for continuing education.

Are you passionate about Chicago’s architecture and history?
