Hidden in the back of the Pier, this museum was worth a visit. It holds original glass work from many important artists. I visited it in 2013. I heard it is under renovation in 2016 and that the works are scattered elsewhere. It's a shame....More

Tucked away on the end of the Navy Pier, on the right side, is the two room collection of 12 pieces of Tiffany stained glass panels. It's free and a great place to come out of the cold. Because it's out of the way, we...More

We were excited to see this, but were very disappointed. Way too few pieces to see and an extremely long walk for what you got.

Perfect, short little place on the Pier! It's free and not too long, great after the crowd and noise of the pier!

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
