Online programs and virtual tours continue while CAC tours are currently suspended and the Center is closed, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines from the State of Illinois.


COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. Once in-person activities and Center admissions resume, those who visit the Center and attend CAC tours voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Please follow protection measures as outlined by public health officials for the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago. Adjustments temporarily necessary are detailed below for offerings while they are available.

If you feel ill or suspect you may be experiencing symptoms of a COVID-19 infection, please do not enter the Center or attend any CAC tours. We will be happy to refund your reservation or welcome you to join us again at a later date.

We realize present circumstances bring with them a degree of uncertainty. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have. Please contact us via email at or call the CAC Box Office at 312.922.3432.


The Chicago Architecture Center is temporarily closed until further notice.

CAC walking tours are currently paused in accordance with safety measures and precautions mandated by public health officials. Once they resume, by confirming your reservation for any CAC walking tour, you acknowledge and accept the CAC’s COVID-19 safety policies.
