Floating Museum Begins its 3-Month Journey Up the Chicago River

There’s a brand new floating attraction along Chicago’s Riverwalk. The Floating Museum—and its new mobile exhibit “River Assembly”—is free and open to the public. We caught up with it last week when it was floating along the river’s South Branch.

The Floating Museum is currently docked at the Riverwalk River Theater. That’s on the south bank between LaSalle Drive and Clark Street. It will be there until Aug. 28 when it floats off to Navy Pier for a two-month stay at Polk Brothers Park.
