      The Experience

      This very special walking tour digs into how and why the 1893 World’s Fair captures imaginations more than any other event in Chicago history.

      On this fun and insightful walking tour, you’ll venture into beautiful architectural spaces from the era. You will play a few thoughtfully designed games, like visual scavenger hunts. Along with guide commentary, your guide will show you photos and archival materials via shared iPads that illuminate this historic event of the 1893 World's Fair.

      On this walking tour, you will eat a couple of light snacks, and play a few educational games with prizes for the winning team. Plus, you can opt to get drinks (on you) as well.
      You can think of this 3-hour-long walking tour as being 5% outdoors, 95% indoors, 20% clue-based games and visual scavenger hunts, 10% drinking time, and 100% awesome historical tour time. The math doesn’t add up – you get the idea.

      With just intermittent walks outside, the 1893 World’s Fair Tour makes for a great walking tour in all seasons. This tour makes the World’s Fair’s lasting impact come to life.
