About the collections



Chicago History Museum collects and preserves millions of artifacts, documents, and images to help us share Chicago’s stories and help you connect to the city and its history. The vast majority of the collection is not yet online, but through this portal you can access many of the most significant, exciting, and popular materials in the Museum's collection. Search by key word or simply browse the collection items featured here. If you're interested in learning more about researching materials in the collection, you can find more information at A guide to the Research Center at the Chicago History Museum.

 

 

Funded through the generous support of the Chicago History Museum's Costume Council.
