The historic mansion at the International Museum of Surgical Science is a distinctive venue available for special events and tours. Lectures, meetings, receptions, and dinners hosted at the Museum offer your guests an elegant setting, interesting exhibits, and breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. Guests enter the Museum and are led up a guilded metal staircase to the main floor. Italian marble floors, marble fireplaces, and 14-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows are just some of the original interior finished that have been preserved. One of the few remaining lakefront mansions, the building truly embodies the Gold Coast splendor of the late 19th century and is just minutes away from downtown Chicago.
