Concierge Preferred has the inside scoop on the new projects going on around Navy Pier, and right now the word is that upcoming development initiatives are going to be huge, engaging, and, well, dramatic. The Navy Pier Board announced that they are planning to expand the Shakespeare Theater as well as the Chicago Children’s Museum, adding to the already outstanding cultural attractions in the area. Chicago visitors and locals alike will be able to take advantage of great theatrical productions and interactive exhibits for the kids all within a six-block walk. As Chicago’s #1 resource for city activities, Concierge Preferred can’t wait for construction to begin on this exciting project.
Shakespeare Theater and Chicago Children’s Museum Ensure Fun for All Ages and Interests
Hoping to draw larger numbers of adult and year-round visitors, the theater expansion and children’s museum addition will provide fun activities even when the beaches aren’t available and the famous Chicago winds are blowing in the winter months. The construction project is called the Centennial Vision and will cost an estimated $155 million — a small price to pay for added attractions for the more than 8 million tourists who visit Navy Pier each year.
Although a beginning construction date has not been set yet, planners hope the project will be completed by 2016, the year that marks the area’s 100th anniversary. When it opens, new attractions are sure to bring out and highlight the culture and community that Chicago is known for worldwide. Concierge Preferred is excited to add the two new locations to the list of can’t-miss activities in the city, so for more information on everything to do in Chicago, make Concierge your #1 choice for guidance.
