Smaller spaces within the Museum are also available for private events.
The Museum combines hi-tech interactive experiences—including skill challenges and simulated experiences—with unique sports memorabilia, and an impressive collection of game-used treasures and other artifacts. Massive windows with breathtaking lake views flood the space with natural light. Two jumbo screens roll down from the ceiling for exceptional video viewing. A broadcast booth exhibit can serve as a DJ booth and the photo booth can be customized to match the theme of the event.
The adjacent Harry Caray’s 7th Inning Stretch provides the catering for all events within the Museum. A wide range of menus are available for events ranging from corporate meetings to Bar/Bat Mitvahs to rehearsal dinners and weddings. With over 25 years of catering and event planning experience, Harry’s will perfectly orchestrate every event from start to finish.

About the Chicago Sports Museum
The Museum is organized around five major zones:
- Measure Up
Visitors will start their tour with a series of interactive experiences where they can compare their abilities to the extraordinary strength, size and agility of Chicago legends such as Michael Jordan and William “The Fridge” Perry.
- Forensic Sports
This area of the Museum will demonstrate how CSI-type techniques can be used to unravel sports mysteries and separate fact from fiction. Visitors will see how Harry Caray’s has worked with the FBI, radiologists, chemists and other specialists to show that in the world of sports, things are not always as they appear.
- Fan Zone
The center of the Museum celebrates Chicago sports fans. Harry Caray himself was known as the greatest Chicago baseball fan of all time. A replica of the Wrigley Field broadcast booth will allow visitors to call a game like Harry, sing ”Take Me Out to the Ballgame”, or do your best Harry impersonation. Fans will also put their Chicago sports knowledge to the test with a giant interactive trivia game.
- Curses and Superstitions
As guests enter this stone-clad room, they will be immersed in the phenomenon of popular and lesser known sports “curses” as well as player superstitions and rituals. Visitors will learn about curses that have plagued Chicago sports teams as well as those around the world, and can then test their new knowledge with the Curses! game. They will also hear directly from well-known Chicago athletes about their personal superstitions and rituals.
- Hall of Legends
This gallery highlights Chicago’s Hall of Fame athletes and offers an array of “play with the legends” interactive baseball, basketball, football and hockey competitions. Guests will be captivated by playing one-of-a-kind games, including •
- All-Star Home Run Contest as Hall of Fame White Sox slugger Frank Thomas •
- Quarterback Challenge where players must avoid getting sacked by Hall of Famer and Super Bowl XX MVP Richard Dent •
- Defending the goal as Blackhawk’s Superstar Patrick Kane takes slap shots •
