for Curious People
Our virtual events inspire connections and uplift meetings.
We bring curious people to explore, learn and interact on live, virtual events of Chicago history and architecture. Using stunning visuals and innovative games, our virtual tour events tell stories of the 1893 World’s Fair, the history of Chicago food and drink, the Chicago River and more.
