This Father’s Day, we celebrate the men in our lives and the machines they love—automobiles. Weather permitting; two vintage cars from Chicago Vintage Motor Carriage will be displayed in front of the Driehaus Museum from noon until 3 p.m. All dads receive complimentary general admission to the Museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Please pardon our appearance as we restore the limestone stairs that lead to the front door of the Museum.
