HEADS UP!

MUSEUM CAMPUS CAN GET BUSY WITH OUR CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS, STADIUM, AND CONCERT VENUE. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO PLAN AHEAD! All Museum Campus parking lots are owned by the Chicago Parks District and managed by Standard Parking. The Adler does not control parking rates. Rates can vary due to activities such as football games, concerts, and other special events. Check the Soldier Field and Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island schedules for upcoming events that may impact parking or travel to the Adler and Museum Campus.
