Description

The Chicago Sports Museum combines hi-tech interactive experiences?including skill challenges and simulated experiences?with unique sports memorabilia and an impressive collection of game-used treasures and other artifacts.

Measure Up

Visitors start their tour with a series of one-of-a-kind interactive experiences where they can compare their abilities to the extraordinary strength, size and agility of many of Chicago’s finest athletes.

Forensic Sports

This area of the Museum demonstrates how CSI-type techniques can be used to unravel sports mysteries and separate fact from fiction. Over the years, Harry Caray’s has worked with the FBI, radiologists, chemists and other specialists to show that in the world of sports, things are not always as they appear.

Fan Zone

The center of the Museum celebrates Chicago sports fans. Harry Caray himself was known as the greatest Chicago baseball fan of all time. A replica of the Wrigley Field broadcast booth will allow visitors to call a game like Harry, sing ”Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” or do their best Harry impersonation. Fans will also put their Chicago sports knowledge to the test with a giant interactive trivia game.

Curses & Superstitions

As guests enter this stone-clad room, they will be immersed in the phenomenon of popular and lesser known sports “curses” as well as player superstitions and rituals.

Hall of Legends

This gallery highlights offers an array of “play with the legends” baseball, basketball, football and hockey interactive games.
