Take the Train to the Chicago History Museum

Save $2 on Admission and See the New Railroaders Exhibit

Take the Train to the Chicago History Museum

With multiple daily services heading to Chicago, you can plan your trip to the Chicago History Museum and discover for yourself what it meant to be a railroader. Receive $2 off general admission and visit the new exhibit Railroaders: Jack Delano's Homefront Photography.

Railroads and rail workers were essential to America's victory in World War II. In 1942, the Office of War Information issued photographer Jack Delano a new assignment: document "railroads and their place in American life."

The Railroaders exhibit features more than 60 of Delano's images, both black and white and early color photographs. Come explore the stories of the Chicago railroad community whose work was instrumental to the war effort during World War II. Step inside a caboose and help rail yard workers get trains ready for the road.

Enjoy the convenience of Amtrak travel and get the full railroad experience from the train ride to the exhibit.

Amtrak riders will receive $2 off general admission tickets to the Museum when they present their train ticket. Kids 12 and under are always free at the museum. Offer is valid through August 10, 2015. One redemption per person.

Railroaders is presented in partnership with the Center for Railroad Photography & Art with generous support from The Candelaria Fund, CN, Bon and Holly French, David and Cynthia Kahler, North American Railway Foundation and Union Pacific Foundation. Promotional support provided by Metra, Amtrak and the Chicago South Shore Railroad.
