Accessible Tours For Your Convenience
Chicago Architecture Foundation Tours
The Foundation is famous for its architectural tours. Archicenter, where bus and walking tours originate, has exhibits, a free lunchtime lecture series and a wonderful shop. The Corner Bakery off the lobby has a fully accessible, single use restroom. All walking tours in the Loop are ADA accessible so visitors with mobility impairments, walkers or scooters can be accommodated without advance notice. Portable assistive listening devices are available for 2 walking tours: Historic Skyscraper Tour and Architectural Culture and Commerce Tour. Bus tours such as the Frank Lloyd Wright tour to Oak Park require 2-weeks advance notice for lift-equipped service. Some historic buildings and homes are not accessible. The Foundation’s river cruises are not wheelchair accessible as one must descend steps to the dock, even from Lower Wacker. For further information, call the tour director at 312-922-3432 x 268.
