McCormick Bridgehouse and Museum in Chicago

In 2006, the SW bridge tender house became home to the McCormick Bridgehouse Museum.

Displays of the history of the Chicago River, as well as the ability to see the operating machinery

of the bridge, and to access to all levels of the bridge tender house make this museum a must

see for both the bridge enthusiast and the river enthusiast.
