McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum

Chicago, Illinois

The country’s first museum dedicated to freedom and the First Amendment, the Freedom Museum aims to communicate first amendment rights in unique and interactive ways. The project included demolition of the existing tenant space and build-out for the new museum. Each exhibit provides opportunities to stimulate the senses and special features, like art projects and a 30-seat Freedom Theater, that bring freedom concepts to life. The unique and innovative design of the building reflects the values taught by the museum.
