This five-story, 1,400-square-foot bridgehouse was designed by Edward Bennett. It's part of the revolutionary 1920 double-decker DuSable (formerly Michigan Avenue) Bridge. The bridgehouse itself is crowned by an urn and a pyramidal roof above an emphatic cornice. The McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum is operated by Friends of the Chicago River and is dedicated to celebrating Chicago’s river and world-famous movable bridges.
All 5 floors of the museum, plus its gear room, will be open to the public.
