Welcome to the Chicago Design Museum

The Chicago Design Museum strives to unite, inform, and inspire. As a resource for the design community and beyond, the museum facilitates an open dialogue about contemporary and historical design through limited-engagement exhibitions, events, public programs, and digital media.


 As the Chicago Design Museum evolves and grows, we look forward to exploring and sharing more of Chicago’s design legacy by unearthing the stories that make our city unique, as well as highlighting dynamic influences from across cultures, borders, and disciplines. We consider this the start of something more—more ideas, more conversations, and more discovery.
