The Chicago Cultural Center is an ornate building in downtown Chicago at 78 E Washington Street with entrances on Randolph and Washington Streets. In addition to art exhibits, a senior center and free music, dance and theater performances, the center also offers tours of the 1897 building.
Things to Know
- The closest CTA station is Randolph/Wabash (all lines except red and blue), but it is not handicap accessible.
- The Chicago Cultural Center is also next to the Millennium Station on the South Shore and Metric Electric District lines
- Public restrooms are on the first floor and Millennium Park is across the street
All Lines Except Red and Blue
- Take any line except red and blue to Randolph/Wabash if you can walk up and down stairs. Walk against the one-way traffic on Randolph Street less than a block to reach the building.
- From the red line, exit at the Lake Station and walk toward Old Navy and turn left on Randolph Street.
Blue Line + Handicap Accessibility
- For handicap-accessibility, exit at Clark/Lake. Turn right on Lake Street after exiting the station and right again on Clark Street. Go one block and turn left on Randolph (view map) — about 10 minutes walking time.
- If you can walk up and down stairs, use the Washington Station and walk on Washington Street in the same direction as the one-way traffic to reach the Chicago Cultural Center.
