COVID-19 Update

Last updated April 25, 2020

The exhibition at Expo 72 is closed until May 30.

We are all aware of the risk that COVID-19 (coronavirus) presents, and want to assure you that we are committed to maintaining a safe environment for all. We continue to carefully monitor the realities of the situation and are taking guidance from the City of Chicago, Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Any changes will be communicated immediately through email, social media, and the museum’s website.

To experience some of the Design Museum from home, please visit our current exhibition, Great Ideas of Humanity: Passing the Torch online, follow us on social media, and try out some Design at Home projects.

At this moment, every dollar counts for the museum. If you enjoy our programming, and want to continue to support design in Chicago, please join our Patreon or make a one-time donation on our Support page. Stay safe and well, and we hope to see you in the gallery soon!
