    When we started looking at wedding venues, we wanted something that had an outdoor and indoor space. When we came across the Chicago History Museum, we fell absolutely in love with the Chicago Room and the outdoor plaza. I cannot get over how perfect this venue was for our wedding! Not only is the space amazing, the staff is wonderful!! Jessica was amazing to work with! She was professional and attendant. Any questions I had for her, were answered quickly and thoroughly! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in Chicago!
