Museum Campus South is a collection of seven museums located in the heart of Chicago’s mid-South Side including the DuSable Museum of African American History, Museum of Science and Industry, Oriental Institute Museum, the Renaissance Society, Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, Smart Museum of Art, and Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts. This renowned collection of organizations showcases contemporary and modern art, architecture, theater, performance, historic collections, archaeology, science and technology.

The campus is located on the Culture Coast, eight miles south of downtown Chicago. The museums surround the site of the historic 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition—between Jackson Park, the University of Chicago campus, the Midway Plaisance, and Washington Park. Over 2 million people visit the consortium of museums each year.

Museum Campus South is the manifestation of a long-standing vision that has recently gained momentum through the City of Chicago’s Cultural Plan to foster and promote vibrant cultural districts citywide. The development of a Museum Campus South represents an important first step in the interest of uniting the dynamic arts and cultural neighborhoods on Chicago’s South Side with each other and downtown.

Please visit the participating institutions for admission prices and hours. For more information on Museum Campus South, attractions, hours and exhibitions, please visit the website at www.museumcampussouth.org.
