The McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum opens today for the 2022 season, which runs through October.

The five-story landmark Michigan Avenue Bridgehouse, located on the Chicago Riverwalk, explores the complicated history of the river from glacial formation through modern revitalization and the work that brought the river back to life.
